  1. My lady wants to get a tabletop slab roller looking for suggestions from the group regards brand names. Really would appreciate your thoughts thanks. Graybeard
  2. Im not looking to get into trouble here but what about the ethics of using something like a tribe name. Doesn't seem right to me or even " native american " unless you are a first nation's member. I would tred lightly. Just my 2 cents worth Graybeard
  3. How about pic of the kiln, location and some specs on it. Stay safe Graybeard
  4. Avery, is possible to heat the collars with a torch without burning any other parts. you would need to clean the grease around the top bearing and have a fire extinguisher handy. If you can heat the collar it will expand and loosen on the shift. IF OTHER PEOPLE ON THE FORUM THINK THIS IS A BAD IDEA DONT DO IT!! Graybeard
  5. Well, the day has arrived. I've had trouble with my kiln reaching ^6. How do I check the resistance of the elements and where do I find how many ohms is acceptable? Do I need to go into the control box or can I hook the vom to the elements inside the kiln? Any help appreciated Stay safe Graybeard
  6. Mark, you forgot you can also keep your coffee hot Graybeard
  7. I've always had a hard time repeating size and shapes with mugs, vases, bowls, whatever. I decided to try cutting the shape that I wanted to repeat out of a thin slab of clay and firing it to make a custom rib. It worked. I can't be the first one to try this but thought I'd put it out there. Stay safe! Graybeard
  8. If it was me I'd pick it up in a heart beat but I'm kinda handy. I would see what the other people have to say. But for 200 dollars I'd take a chance. Graybeard
  9. Hi guys, my question is about loading my kiln. If I load the kiln only 1/3 full will it make it harder to reach ^5 than if the the kiln is full? Thanks Graybeard
