In Topic: Too Thin Or Wrong Technique

A couple of ideas for the rim smoothing issue.  Since the chamois pieces are small and natural colored, they are easily lost.  You can get fishing bobbers and attach them to the chamois' so they won't get lost as easily.  I found a synthetic chamois that is bright blue instead of natural color, and that has worked very well for me.  When in a pinch, a piece of grocery bag plastic works just as well and I always have those lying around because I use them for transport packing material.  ( note transport, not shipping)

John, would you elucidate what the proper angle should be for this type of trimming tool.  Maybe that is why I am having trouble using my bison tool.  I'm finding it doesn't cut well.

I have a large plastic storage bin that I cut in half, then cut a half moon into each cut side and this gets put into place when I use the giffen grip.  It's just high enough to catch the trimmings.

OK, Marcia, you have to tell us about the "What was I thinking?!!" part of your story.

In Topic: Potters Joy Of Christmas Day

I've held back somewhat from gifting my pots to my family.  Don't want to force my stuff on them.  This year I decided to bring a couple of boxes of smallish items on Christmas day and let folks pick something IF THEY WANTED to.  What a great feeling when they descended on the table where I had put things out and had friendly arguments over who got what and asked if it was alright to pick more than one.


That was my best Christmas gift.
