Really nice Mark. I feel that your craftsmanship is what makes the glazes sing.

In Topic: Are You Taking Pictures/notes While Working?

Yesterday, 05:35 PM

I take lots of notes NOW. I remember to do this because I know I will NOT remember anything in a month. I also am fanatical 

about labeling everything, especially cups of test glazes, slips, stains, bags of clay! Once I go to the next thing, I

cannot remember what was.  It is the pain of not knowing that forces me to be diligent. Tape and marker are as important

as note book.

In Topic: Pregnancy And Working In The Studio?

One of many hormones that are released when pregnant loosens joints, so care is needed with pressure and weight.

All the best! ( I have 2 "babies" age 18 and 19)

In Topic: Pugmill As Extruder - Will It Work?

Chilly, - "So long as you have space to hide it and space to mount if for using, you DO have the space!"


What's cool is even if your suggestion is not fitting for me, it will probably give someone who wants an

extruder ideas for installing theirs. 

I'm sorry if I wasn't clear enough in my earlier comment, but I am not looking to get an extruder.

I am looking forward to talking to some tech support people about the pugmill dies tomorrow. I will post the outcome. 

 Battening down the hatches now for a possible blizzard tomorrow night!

karen, you do have room for an extruder.  bolt a 2x6 upright onto the leg of the table holding your pugmill.  bolt the extruder to that just high enough to not be in the way.


it looks as though you share your space with a vehicle.  too bad. 


Yes, on days like today, 6"+ of snow, or bitter cold nights, I pull my car in so no room for anything outside of that leg. Also need to wedge there. Other side would interfere with the functionality of the table. Thanks so much for all the suggestions.
