In Topic: Metal Grid Shelves Vs Wood Shelves

Today, 12:37 AM

I'm not a fan of grid wall for ceramics-to busy-to heavy and to easy to  beat up.

Just my 2 cents

Covered surfaces or wood is best for pots I feel-this is a personal issue

 wood glass or metal

Metal for me is at the bottom. of the list for pots. Now brused aluminum would be cool.

He does mention Ceramical as the industry standard-That alone may enough to order some fresh stock up. I will add fresh plaster is what you want to use.

Those specs are very close except for the expansion % betwween hydrcal and Ceramical as well as a 1500# differeance oin compression strength.

I would just use the Hydrocal and be happy


Now as to the rubber masters -I have had a pro make mine a few times-the rubbers have been a bit different but are pretty hard for the masters.I would ask him about this except he has passed away.

The quaility rubbers are spendy-I have masters in a green runner and a brown rubber-both are very stiff.I cannot say what they are exactly. You may want to contact a master mold person on this info.

Those butter bells will clean easier if they are glazed as much as possible.
