Found A Cord, What Kind?

19 November 2016 - 12:28 PM

cleaning up studio a little and found a cord from a kiln.  no idea which one.  anyone know from the picture and description?  it is a paragon, cord says TYPE SRDT DRYER CORD CABLE 10/4 90 (degree symbol) C.


if it is the same as the one on my portable controller can it be installed on a very old L&L econokiln model 18 ?  label says watts 44 volts 220/II ? (cannot read well) amps 20 serial number 10117 (?) "not to be used over 2300 degrees"


this kiln is so old that i watched it doing a raku firing in the 1970s, the cords between rings are covered with black and white fabric and it has the old L&L address in pennsylvania.  it has been sitting around for a long time and i have never used it.

Hooray! It's Over!

Math Problem Is Beyond Me

01 November 2016 - 09:37 PM

today the brain is not working well.  not that math is easy even when it is.  truly stupid question.  my glaze recipe totals 100 grams.


i want to make 8000 grams.  what do i multiply each amount by to get to 8000? :(

Thank You To Josephf

have been making pots for a very long time.  had a respirator many years ago that was clumsy, did not fit, could not see over so i did not use it often.  hardly ever. :wacko:


thank you joseph for posting the info about the marvelous one i now have.  the pink one you used as an avatar for awhile.  it is just right, fits wonderfully with my glasses and hat and i forget that it is there when i am spraying glaze.   :wub:


just wanted to let everyone know that it is a really good buy and so easy to use. so, thank you, joseph for directing me to it. :D

Posting Photos Here

05 October 2016 - 10:57 AM

i have no cell phone so i do not know how to use one.  at all.  


lately, over the past year or so, i have noticed that here and other websites the photos are often shown sideways.  that is, an item that is clearly vertical is shown horizontally.  i know people use the cameras built into their cell phones and wonder why the pictures come out this way when posted.  


is there a "usual" direction that results in accurate photos and some people are taking them sideways to get everything in the shot or what?  once taken and posted, they cannot be changed, apparently.  how can this be fixed?
