    thank you, johnny.   i didn't explain this situation well.  my daughter had some time this evening and she walked me through apartial solution.   there is more to it and she is going to contact someone at facebook tomorrow.

    this forum is apparently different from others.   lately, many new people are putting questions in this area.   but they are not titling the question, just using their names.   why is this happening?  
     
     linda, if you look at the format on the opening page you will see several headings under which people ask  questions.   yours belongs in the  Studio operations and making work if i remember it correctly.    if you move it to the correct place, you will get correct answers.

    Your more big time into coffee than my son, he is a trained chef and picked up the trick of using a popcorn popper from another chef.  Did you get your settling system built for your sink?  If you have anymore studio questions just ask before you spend a lot of money.   I have had three different studios in the past 45 years,  I am not even counting the first area I had was a chair,  fold down desk top and small kiln.   I started out with hand building and glass melting.  I  had done hand building in high school and eventually got my degree in a ceramics fine arts degree.   Denice

    I just finished cleaning it. L&L so nice. A pocket knife to lift the elements up slightly and vacuum under them and it took me about 30 minutes to make it look brand spanking new again. But yes. I am very lucky. It would have destroyed my kiln. There were shards of clay covered in glaze everywhere. I would have had to replace tons of bricks, element holders and elements. I am very fortunate today!

    Turned out pretty well, have done 2 bisque's and a glaze fire. Blew up one of my planters with the built-in drip tray, didn't let it dry long enough, the bases are pretty thick.

    denise, i used them for years.  if you dampen the bats themselves, they expand just enough to fit tightly.  you learn to center a little differently if they lift up a bit.  very useful as the pot pops off when it dries enough.
