  1. Yesterday my husband and I successfully replaced all the elements in my Skutt KM-1027 kiln. Unfortunately we chipped some of the firebrick as the old elements were brittle and tough to remove. Photos attached. Do I need to repair those chips? if so what do you use to repair (kiln cement? what type?). I saved the chips that came out. Thank for your help.
  2. I love being a DIY'er and looking for a firebrick recipe that could compare to K-26 IFB, so I can fire to cone 10 in it. None of the local brick companies sell IFB so this seems like a way to go. Im not really interested in feedback whether I should or not. Just a recipe will do, preferably from someone who has made and fired the brick and experience with the results. Thanks,
  3. Anyone one have tips/knowledge about Gallup brick? Any insight on temperature rating would be appreciated!
  4. Hi there, I recently bought my very first kiln. It's VERY old, I think from the 60's or 70's. I was assuming it would have cracks in it, but I am a little concerned about the condition of the firebrick on the top. It's so crumbled it's almost falling into the kiln. I've seen a few websites that say the cracks don't matter unless the elements are sagging because of it, but I just find it hard to believe that with it this damaged they can still insulate (especially at the top). I've attached a picture of it. Can anyone tell me if I need to repair these bricks or not? Or does it just not
