In Topic: Hard Brick Vs Ifb

Today, 08:19 PM

These bricks are 15lbs each. So I guess that means 5 times the energy requirement of that of IFB.

So I guess I will use these bricks for the floor and the base of the chimney.

Thanks Mark and John

Imagines Mark meeting a talc dealer on a street corner, exchanging cash baggies of sweet, sweet vintage talc...

How did the glass jar trick work for you. If you were able to layer out some silt, was it more workable?


In Topic: I Can't See/find My Cone!

16 October 2014 - 12:06 AM

I have problems seeing the cones in my small gas kiln. The flames play havoc with viewing the cones, especially in reduction. This stuff is harder than is seems it should be. I agree with Babs: hearing other's struggles validates my own.


In Topic: Buying A Used Kiln

$300 is a good starting point. Ask him when he last changed the elements and to what cone he fired the kiln. This will give you an idea of how long your used kiln elements will last. If they have been replaced in the last 3-4 years, it should be fine, especially he fired to 05-6 cones. If the kiln is an L&L, buy it.
