  1. One more question - I want to fire before I'll be able to try and upgrade my setup, but no way I'm running that thing all day! But...now I've got these holes drilled into my kiln lid and floor. Would you take any steps to mitigate that, like putting a kiln shelf or stilts over the holes? Or just leave it be?
  2. Thanks for all of the great advice - my new plan is to find a suitable inline fan motor to swap out, keeping the rest of the apparatus, the collection cup and hose, and see if that is a better solution.
  3. yeah, it's much more invasive than I would have thought! it's already in the unattached garage, so it's as separate as can be expected. Nobody's working in the building, so the benefit was purely for the ware, not people breathing. If I can't replace the fan, I probably just won't use it. I was thinking it'd be good for evening out the temperature in the kiln and providing a better oxidation atmosphere, but there's no way I'd ask neighbors to put up with that noise for hours on end, not to mention that I'd never be able to fire early in the morning or late at night. I (stupidly) hadn't
  4. Normal, huh? Shoot, I was afraid of that. Curious if anyone who has and uses one of these has had complaints from neighbors about noise - it doesn't seem workable in a residential neighborhood with 50 foot wide lots. It's hard to believe they sell these things without a noise rating! Having that thing going for 8+ hours.... I'm considering replacing the fan with a quieter inline fan - anyone done this? Have recommended products or warnings?

  7. Just installed a new envirovent, seems to be working properly but it's really loud. Like vacuum cleaner loud. A freebie noise measuring app on my phone put it between 76-82 decibels, and I can't imagine this thing running for the length of a firing, for me and for neighbors. A few questions for the collective: Is noise a known issue for the envirovent II system, or is it possible I have a defective unit? If it is just the way it is, how do you handle the noise? Do you keep it running for the entire time? Has the noise discouraged you from using it? Thanks, all!
  8. I'm of the opinion that sometimes a crack can make a decorative piece more interesting! Word of warning: if you have runny glaze, be sure to put something underneath it to protect your shelves and other ware, some glazes really run.

  13. @MinI really appreciate all of the info and links! As my high school chemistry teacher used to say, "context matters!" His favorite example - water is fatal if you drink 3 gallons instead of 3 glasses, or put it in your lungs instead of your stomach.
