In Topic: Kiln Conversion Updraft Downdraft Chimney?

I used a cd disc. I drilled a small hole in the edge of the disc and threaded a screw through it. I then clamped the screw to the motor housing. The disc slides to increase or decrease the air flow. It works.

In Topic: Solar Powered Kiln?

please let me define solar power differently.

Def: Solar power is power derived from the sun in any of its forms.
1. Photosynthesis uses light photons to fix CO2 to create sugar. The result is wood, which is used in kilns.
2. Photovoltaic as mentioned in this thread is solar energy.
3. Photosynthesis + pressure + time = coal which when burned can create electricity that we use to fire kilns.
4. Uranium is a product of fusion. Suns are giant fusion reaction. So even nuclear energy is solar energy.

Is there any energy on this earth which is not "solar energy?"

It does not change a thing, but even so, after all of these posts, it's nice to know.....

Joel, How is your kiln build going.  I haven't seen an update recently.  Have you fired up the power burners, yet.  Hopefully, you are so busy firing it that you have not had time to update the rest of us.
