  1. Ya dual firing system is new in Taiwan many personal studio uses it to get a minor reduction effect. Its not as reduction as full gas kiln. I have the kiln at the entrance of my house, now I'm gonna move it outside of the house because this incident. Here is the link of the brand. Sorry its all Mandarin. Brand is Lonkai, they are leading brand for these dual firing kilns in Taiwan. http://www.longkai.com.tw/tw_products_detail.asp?Fkindno=F000001&Pidno=201205290001
  2. However there is a switch to fire reduction which uses gas to heat up at 1100 c, as well a venting hose sucks the air out. That hose suppose to be hookup to a hole on the door to vent out the air to the outside of the house. And I don't know what cause the odor, I will ask the manufacturer. Actually combine gas firing at which temperature can be programmed.
  3. The gas line didn't hook up gas tank. So electric powered up to 1200 c degree. Sure used a lot of electricity.
  4. And the animals are still there running wild freely.
  5. I'm not sure the cause of this smell. I was told by the manufacturer it is commonly occurs during the first firing. So he suggested to fire it to 1200 c on first fire.
  6. Hi everyone. I recently purchased a electric / gas dual firing kiln and was told to do a 1200 c firing to get rid of the first firing bad smell. I forget to switch it to oxidation firing and the venting hose was inside the house without me noticing until later on. It was fired empty kiln with just kiln shelves and stands. It was set to fire 12 hours and during the 4th hour I started notice bad smell and turn on the fans and windows and moved to safe zone. At 8th hour I notice the whole house is this smell and it stings my eyes. I probably inhaled 3 hours of these, might be lessor because i had opened the window a bit. I'm not sure. So my question is, am I gonna be in serious deep trouble now after inhaled the fume for 3 hours? Is this real bad? I'm worry I'm gonna die?
  7. So it is impossible to patch these holes with a new layer of plaster?
  8. Thanks above replies, instead of sanding can I just pour plaster to seal them, sanding seem to take a lot of work and its going to make a mess. So I Just make sure the surface is dry before pouring new layer of plaster?
  9. My wedging table has many small dots and now it turns black. I clean it with brush and water. Now letting it dry. Do You guy think I can repatch them with new plastic after it is completely dry? I'm trying to smooth out the surface.
