      Old Gare Kiln Model 2329A
      Had to replace to cord with the proper sized one. But, while doing that one of the element leads on the bottom came loose on the end not attached to the element and i am not sure where it connects back too. I have not been able to find any images for the back of the controller, or a diagram showing how it is wired up.

      Electric pottery wheels are basically pretty much all the same! It’s just how each company puts it’s own little twist how they get from point A to Z. Electric motors that pottery companies install in there wheels are a common motor that are made for many uses for all kinds things. By using a common motor like this they keep the price of there wheel down to the public! It’s in how they control the motor is where they very the most, but in the end they all are doing the same thing! U can pretty much replace company A  control system with company B control system as long as u match up the correct size controller to the size of the electric motor on your wheel!

      Hello, I am setting up my studio in an attached one-car garage.  In order to heat and cool the studio and provide some air-filtration, I want to open a vent to the house’s HVAC system and make an air return.  To trap silica particles and other studio dust from damaging HVAC unit, I plan to use a filter with a high MERV rating in the air return.  Any advice?  Thank you very much!
