I use Bag Balm. Farmers put it on cow's udders. Most potters around here use it for chapped hands. I get it at Lee Valley Tools, but you could get it at any farmer's supply store.

I use a dremel tool and also coarse sand paper for hand sanding.


In Topic: Brent Foot Pedal--Ugh.

I bought both my Brents used. My CXC  I have had and used for over 40 years. Changed the bearing last year. While my main wheel was down, I bought another used model c from a handbuilder. It is quick and responsive and lighter to move around the studio..

It sounds like you bought a lemon.


Can you return it?

Ironically, both our countries are in the throes of elections. In Canada, education is a provincial mandate. This means that the federal gov't under Stephen Harper cannot cut support to arts education across the board. This did happen in British Columbia with many teacher strikes and protests last year.

I do not in any way wish to come across as smug or superior about our 3 party system. We have  8 weeks to go. The big issue here is health care and balancing the budget.

I don't know what to say... and that's unusual for me.
