    graybeard got a reaction from Selchie in Custom throwing ribs   
    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!

    Ever stab your hand feeling around in your bucket  for a needle tool?  I put pipe insulation around the edge of my splash pan and stick my needle tools into the foam. I haven't stabbed my hand since.

    Hey! Wow thanks to all! I think I see where I went wrong, gonna go out to the garage and throw some clay. I will report back in about 12 days. (Depending on the relative  humidity of course)
    Thanks again

    I've been using the "cheep" HARBOR FREIGHT GRAVITY FEED HVLP gun for a couple years now, liked it so much
    I went back and bought a second one to use when the tip and needle wore out on the first
    one. Hasn't happened yet! anyway, well worth the $17.00 just clean it well after you
    use it.
