  1. Bingo! Even with something as simple as a bowl, which has a million uses, people seem to need to be told what it's for. I can't count how many times someone has come into m y booth and said 'That's a beautiful bowl, but I just don't know what I'd use it for.' Food, maybe?!? Of course, as soon as you say 'ice cream bowl', they say 'I don't like ice cream'! How about salsa? 'I thought you said it was for ice cream'. AAAAAUUUUUUGH! Yes! I have two sizes of bowls in my cupboard for daily use. Not once have I said "No! That's only for salsa, put that back and use the cereal bowls instead". Peo
  2. It's priced at $1200. It's worth half that. Agreed. At the list price this is overpriced. The wheel threw well, was not too bad on drive pucks, and was built like a tank. However, considering the values out there in smaller space efficient excellent belt drive wheels for much lower prices, this thing is a dinosaur. I bought one about 5-6 years ago for $175. This came from a guy who got it at school auction, so I'm sure he paid less than that for it. I replaced the seat and it's worked great ever since. I'd put $75-$100 on it and see what happens!

    Love the fish! And the bowls. Fishies and spirals, it's like we're kindred spirits.
  4. This has been interesting. I'm glad to know I'm not the only one who can't wait until Christmas! It depends on what else I have going on. I try to schedule errands the next day so I am not home and cannot open the kiln too soon. I don't like hearing the pings. However, I do tend to peek very quickly at the top shelf when the kiln is dark but still way too hot. I put my hand over the top peephole and if it doesn't burn my hand in 3 seconds, then I can peek. That's it, though, and then wait until it's at least down to 200 before opening all the way and unloading. It looks like there's not one ri
  5. Good tips! Yes, my old bench grinder finally died and I had to replace it with a new one. I had to take off half the safety stuff to use it, though! I wear goggles and a dust mask always, and often my ear protection if I am grinding several pieces in a row. It is one of the most appreciated tools in the studio and takes glaze drips off very nicely. Diamond bits for the dremel get those smaller spaces.
