In Topic: Can Someone Help With Instructions For 20Year Old Stanton Kiln

27 February 2017 - 06:04 PM

There is one obsolete controller on the Stanton site, not our one.

I counted seven.

What's the model number on yours?

The Stanton T25 is not supplied with a controller (according to current info on their website), so it could be anything, what is the name/number on the controller?

 

There is info on Stantons website for obsolete controllers - it's quite possible that one of these may have been bought with the kiln.

 

Below is the webpage for the controllers they supply now, at the very bottom of the page is a link to obsolete controllers.

In Topic: How To Achieve This Kind Of Marble Effect?

@ Old Lady---you can search Pinterest the same as we search these forums. In Pinterest, put in your key words (big search bar, top left).  I just entered "marble slip clay" and got a bunch of images, several like the one initially posted to begin this thread. 

 

I'm with oldlady on Pinterest: I often search *Google images* and it invariably ends up at Pinterest. Once you get to Pinterest and try and follow any links from there you end up going around in circles.

 

I usually start an image search now with "-Pinterest" in the search term.


In Topic: Finding Bats To Fit Shimpo Rk-2 Wheel Head

21 January 2017 - 04:11 PM

I make all my own bats, I also had to drill my wheelhead to fit bat pins: I first made a template with a 3mm hole at the centre to allow me to centre it on the wheelhead in which I'd also made a 3mm hole at the centre, a 3mm diameter masonry nail serves as a locating pin.

 

I made the holes for the bat pins asymmetrical: one of them is about 90mm from the centre and the other is about 120mm -  my bats can never be put on the wrong way cos it would be very noticeable.

 

I've obviously kept the template so that any future bats can be drilled out to the same dimensions, a 3mm hole at the centre and a couple of clamps and it's ready to go.
