Re: Lock Box on Kiln controller

Pat,

What are you asking for? Just hire a locksmith to remove or replace the lock.

Re: Refractory product question

Marinite has a tendancy to warp. Cut up mullite kiln shelves work very well, you can also cast your own dams out of products such as Greenlite 45.

Best,

Re: Texture into glass

Glass like this is coming from Mexico, Africa and China. Definitely looks poured. The quality of the glass is dubious but it looks OK. To replicate the look Bert's suggestion is good, cut a circle of float or whatever glass of your choice and slump it on a textured surface. I use the same paper Bert...

Re: Galvanised Steel

No. Search galvanized steel on the forum and you will get more than enough information on this topic.

Re: Glass meant for shelves

What the others said, plus: - It will cut and snap straight, use lubricant on the glass - Start with standard bullseye schedules with +80F for all steps - Float is prone to devit, especially if you do not clean it well - Since you have no idea which factories the glass came from, odds are the sheets...

Re: Wearing gloves when cutting glass

You might want to try surgical gloves, either latex or non depending on your allergies. They will stop the light cuts and little stuff, you have to press more than lightly against an edge or sliver to get a cut. The gloves will cut first and you might go through a box every so often, but they are li...

Re: Ever seen THIS before?

I would:
1. find out what type of stainless that was, I do not think it is all stainless
2. Not use that type of metal again
3. Make sure the stainless you do use is something like 304
4. Pre fire all metal rings or molds before actually putting kiln wash etc. on them


Better safe than sorry,

Re: Ever seen THIS before?

That was my first thought but if you look at the dams and the thermocouple, it looks like something crystalized on them. Leads me to think that something vaporized and crystalized on the way down. Hmmm, did you use tap water with the borax?

Re: Ever seen THIS before?

Did you spray anything in the kiln [borax, etc.] prior to firing? There is so much crystalization that it looks like something was on the dams, glass, etc.

Re: Ever seen THIS before?

Before you put any stainless in the kiln you should take it up to at least 1000F to burn off anything you cannot wash off.

Re: Locating a sandblast cabinet in Portland

I am in Vancouver WA and have a small sandblasting setup that works good for frosting pieces. If you are looking for something like that we can work something out.

Re: Ever seen THIS before?

Did you pre-fire the stainless before you used it for your project? This looks like a chemical reaction , not anything to do with stainless.

Re: Two quick questions about Mason Stains

How mason stain works on float depends on a number of factors such as the high temp of your schedule, the medium you are using to apply the stain and the amount of stain you use. In my experience, using a mix of 50% stain to clearfire by weight, that the darker shades of black come out very much the...
