  1. So it's like a salt kiln in that once done, it would be fully committed. I think I will just be dusting a few pieces with ash during glazing. You have saved me a lot of time and effort. Thanks, Jed
  2. This is for anyone who has had success adding wood pellets to a gas kiln? I have questions 1. When would I add them? 2. Does the ash do its magic only at high temp? 3. Do pellet produce sufficient ash? 4. For how long do I burn the pellets? 5. Does the kiln need to be in reduction? Jed
  3. With 6 long flutes, it becomes top heavy. I could do 6 smaller flutes. I guess I could drill 6 holes in hard fire brick. It would be more stable. Here is an example of the flutes. Jed
  4. I have been making native american flutes for a while. I really like glaze firing the flutes vertically so they glazes can be more fluid. (if I glaze fire the flutes horizontally, the glazes drips off. I use clayscape glazes that tend to run.) I use a DIY setup where 4 pieces of old oven elements are vertically set into a 9x4.5 IFB. My kiln can hold about 24 flutes during the glaze firing. It doesn't seem like great use of space. Does anyone have a better method? Jed
  5. This is great. There is no reason to reevent the wheel. Jed
  6. that is one of my concerns......how well it would be accepted. And how many are interested. If there is mild interest, it would not be worth it.
  7. I have an idea to break into the hobbiest market with one. I have a control engineer who might be interested in downsizing the concept.
  8. I want to find out if there would be an interest in a programable gas fired kiln similar to the electric kiln with soaks, different ramps, and firing down options, in addition to oxidation/reduction control. Jed
  9. l found the Frank Goydos frit substitution chart. It is 30 pages long. Can I post a pdf file here? If so, I need some instructions to do so. If others are interested in the chart, pm me and we can exchange e-mails so i can send the pdf file to you. The chart is quite extensive Jed
  10. 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!

  11. 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
  12. I just finished welding up my kiln frame. Now I need to stack the chimney and make the door.

  21. 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
  22. 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
