  1. Mine are from the Minnesota flat top you told me about 2-3 years ago in Fresno, CA. The kiln was built built in the late 80'S I think. They are ruff. Thanks.
  2. burner ports are on the back side and will be about 3 feet away from the back wall. There will be doors on the back side to open during firing, giving me more room as well as a windbreak. I can build with steel siding. Already have the cinder block walls. I can also put "temporary walls" (dry stacked) around the burners to form a windbreak. Jed P.S. as long as those post use witnessed cones to show how "Baked" they are, I'm fine with them
  3. I have limited space. So I have to plan my shed construction accordingly. I thought I would Build the shed Just a bit wider than the kiln's width. The side walls would be removable panels that I would remove while firing. They would then be rehung after the firing to protect the kiln from the weather. The support framing will be steel sucker pipe at the corner and steel framing studs where needed. Jed
  4. K26 IFB wall, no current fiber boards or sheet metal on the outside. I don't know about course or fine. sorry.
  5. all soft brick except around ports and chimney outflow. There is also 3" layer of fiber on top of this 20 cu ft gas fired downdraft. Jed
  6. 1. During a firing, how hot will the outside of the 9 inch walls of the kiln get if the kiln is fired to ^6 or ^10? 2. How close can the kiln be to a wall? Jed
  7. I normally extrude extrude stoneware. I also have had good success extruding Dixon scultping clay. I just wanted to try something different. Jed
  8. I would love to see any pictures of extruded colored clay. Any hollow extruded tubes using colored clay would be of great interest. Jed
  9. Today I just got the paperwork from the Lawyer. It's official I have started "Aspie's Retreat" a camp for kids with autism. Art, pottery, music, eventually equestrian therapy, and ATV activitieswill be part of the program. Now I have to hit people up for donations. I'm so excited!

  10. Please excuse this.....but I just can't help myself... 1. Pugaboo why do you want to bisque fire students to cone 04? 2. Nerd and John, I would say that students would have serious issue with LOI. After my dad was fired he could fit in a small urn. Now that is true LOI...... Jed
  11. I just finished welding up my kiln frame. Now I need to stack the chimney and make the door.

  20. My damp box is made from normal plaster of Paris. my base of by damp box is 15 x 26 and the slab is 2 inches thick. No problems so far. Jed
  21. You could cover the pins with plastic and place a small amount of epoxy in the bat pin holes, then press the bat onto the wheel head. The epoxy would "fill in" around the bat pins and dry. Once dry the plastic would allow the bat to be removed. Hopefully, all the extra wiggle room around the bat pins will be filled with hardened epoxy. Jed
  22. You may want to place piece of material over the feather before rolling so the roller does not pick up the stain and smear it. Jed
