  1. I have just started making my own glazes, I purchased the raw materials and I used my friend’s hood in her lab to mix up some of the glazes. I have bisqued pieces and the first coat of the glaze went on easily, BUT when I went to apply the the second coat it dried almost as quickly as the brush touched the pot, making it nearly impossible to apply a second coat. It was as if the glaze crystalized upon touching like in a supersaturated solution, but the glaze was well mixed and not supersaturated. This was with “Tin Foil II” and “MFE Turnidge”. I did not wait long between coats… Any ideas would be appreciated.
  2. I'll start by admitting complete ignorance when it comes to electric wheels. For most of the last 40 years, I've thrown on a Brent wooden kickwheel, the kind you cut the wooden parts for out of a sheet of plywood and the flywheel is bricks sandwiched between two ply disks. It's been through three changes of wood. (Now it's quietly composting in a corner of the backyard.) These days I use a nice Lockerbie, which I like a lot better. However, a while back I bought a used Clay Boss for next to nothing. It ran fine for a couple weeks, then it started acting weird. It seemed to be skipping a little on the power transmission, and pretty soon, when I stopped it, it wouldn't start again unless I manually moved the wheel head. Sometimes it won't start at all. What does this sound like? Any advice or instruction will be gratefully received.
