Years later this same guy blew up his home built catanary arch kiln-the two end walls blew out and the arch went up then down into a pile.


I'm assuming he blew up a gas kiln..... I'm planning on building a wood fired ( maybe ocassionall gas fired) cant'. I don't want to blow it up!!! What did he do wrong?

200#   why buy anything


use the human hammer mill

a sledge hammer, and a 5 gal bucket.

never more than 10 pounds in bucket

think butter churn

ive made dust out granite chips and feldspar chips  should be fine with clay


another suggestion was to place  clay,  stones etc between 2 metal plates drive car over.... refill and repeat


a ball mill would also work
