I have 150 K26 soft bricks that have been drilled through with about a 5/8-inch hole on the broad side of the brick. I want to fill the holes and then reuse these bricks. Does anyone have a recommendation on what type of material/product to use? I have looked online and see that there are fillers intended for repairing small kilns, but these products are packaged in small amounts - too small - and by the time I'd buy it I'd have spent more than I'd be saving by salvaging the bricks I have. The bricks are to be used for a lid for a wood fire train kiln. The first design is failing and has to be rebuilt.
I recently bought a used kiln. My first kiln! I bought it from the original owner, who used in very minimally. As far as I can tell the kiln has a lot of life left to give. I believe that after some glaze had come into contact with one of the side wall bricks, it had not been removed befor the next firing or firings, and became embedded into the brick. The gaze apperas to have saturated about 1/4 in. into the bricks surface but without contacting any elements. The rest of the interior looks great, so this really stands out to me. Should I try to remove embedded glaze before I attempt to fire? It is the DE 1020-2 Duncan w the digital controller, and any knowledge you can share about this kiln would be appreciated as well. Thank you, and thank you all for the priceless info on these forums! Beginner Potter
