  1. I've been meaning to report back on this. I dropped the middle hold and added the time to the last hold and there were a few pinholes that didn't heal. Plus while the glaze looked good it was definitely different
  2. This person services over 200 restaurants with his ^6 stoneware https://www.facebook.com/eater/videos/832859020809131/ Mods: I don't know how to post a clickable video if you can fix this it would be great. edit by Min: same video, different source. To post a video right click on the video you want to post and select "copy video URL” then click on your post where you want to add it. Default is to have the video show up but it can be posted as a link also. I posted the YouTube version because I don't know if the book of faces on you linked would be accessible to people who don't
  3. Yes, It seems I can't tell my left from my right let alone how to read an analog clock. Directions are fixed above.
  4. Years back I had one of these and as luck has it I found the images I used to sell it on Craig's list. Ignore the the decal markings on your kiln and take a look at the image. If you look closely you will see some pencil marks and notice the top decal markings is slightly different than the bottom markings Bisque firing (^04) 1) Set your dial to 9:00 (Low) for one hour 2) Then set your dial to around 5:30 (Med) for 2 hours 3) Next set your dial to around 2:00 (High) until the sitter drops Glaze firing (^6) 1) Set your dial to 9:00 (Low) for one hour 2) Then set your d
  5. Interesting... I'm going to give it a try. Thanks
  6. My schedule is the same but I add another drop to 1900F and hold there for 15 minutes. I've found that when I fire Standards 112 this way my pin hole problem goes away.
  7. I'll be opening a kiln load of bisque today that will take 3 glaze firings to complete, all pots are for orders I have received since my last Pop-up sale. I accept checks and deposit them on the spot with a mobile app from my bank
  8. I started when I was 62 and didn't even consider my age as a being a factor if I should dive into pottery. It's not your age but your attitude on believing you can learn something new is what counts.
  9. This is exactly what I do with my 25", 12 sided, full round shelves. I thought it was odd when Olympic said to use 4 posts. Now I can't help to wonder why they gave me bad info and why I didn't trust my gut.
  10. To be clear, my kiln is a top loader and if I place two posts in the front and one in the back and as long as I keep the posts aligned top to bottom, it shouldn't be a problem if I inadvertently rotate a shelf 90°.
  11. Oops, Sorry Neil. I'd blame it on auto correct but that wouldn't be true. Honestly I just came back to correct myself but you are to quick in catching my error
  12. My little Olympic SQ169HE uses 15" square shelves. So far I have 5 each of bisque and glaze firings When I first installed the kiln I was advised by Olympic to use one post on each corner (4 total) Today while loading the kiln I noticed that one of the shelves doesn't lay flat. Now I'm wondering if 3 would have been better. Any thoughts?
