Venturi Vs Forced Air

29 January 2015 - 07:25 PM

one if the techs (in refernce to bailey gass kiln) said he prefers venturi to forced air.   he thinks that temperature is  more even throughout kin.  he was referencing botched biaque frirng,

 

ive just assumend forced air is more efficient but never thought about how even it would fire......

 

what is the more learned opinion?


Kiln Dismantle ?

05 January 2015 - 05:51 PM

So I have a lead on a 60 cubic foot car kiln used.

Any cons to buying used kiln.

Here is my thoughts on dismantle. Draw trace arch curve, Build arch form. Brace arch form to ceiling, Number all bricks dismantle roof /arch, then walls etc etc... Reverse process to build.???

What's a decent price said used kiln With furniture and burners?

Slab Rolling

27 December 2014 - 08:29 PM

I was always taught to gradually in increments slab my roll my clay through slab roller. I'm now reading that some just go to thickness in one step? I'm referencing bailey and northstar both with 2 rolling cylinders. Have I been wasting my time doing it gradually?
