  2. Howdy! I'm a production artist currently using slipcasting, but would like to switch to jigger/jolly. I'm trying to decide between the only 2 that seem to be available on the market: Axner and Shimpo, and wonder if anyone has any preference or knowledge of the differences between the two in terms of ease of use, durability, or anything else I'm not thinking of.

The operator worked the two simultaneously, making a slab, replacing with new clay and transferring the slab to the
  5. Hi, We have been doing the jigger for the first time and the pieces whatever we are making have a cracks in a same pattern in a same location, and we are using Terracotta clay to make the pieces and here I m attaching the cross sectional pieces of the molds., and in the molds I have few doubts and I would like to get clarified so that I can reduce the cracking doors one by one., Does the thick and thin portions of the molds absorbs water differently so that the pieces are cracking ?
