Re: dremmel suggestions

We just get those inexpensive diamond point sets, which have a lot of different bits (sometimes called points or burrs). They're all made in China, I would imagine by somebody like Hans: https://www.hansinc.com/ https://www.harborfreight.com/diamond-point-rotary-bit-set-20-pc-69653.html https://www....

Re: Ceramaguard for carving?

I use it for carving all the time. You can carve it with any tool that will carve wood or a linoleum block. I carve more intricate designs with a CNC machine. After carving, you can kiln wash or use a sheet of thinfire over the Ceramaguard. The thinfire will hold together fine for the firing and wil...

Re: Light weight Kiln Shelf

I would only use Ceramaguard as a small shelf, not a large one. And it's actually best used to build small pieces on (square foot or less) and transport to the kiln, where I'd put them on a regular shelf or on LOTS of posts for support. It's not really feasible as a large kiln shelf, but it's easy t...

We have a stainless table that we put padding on top.

Mine's a decade old, so I'm sure they don't make that model anymore. I guess it's down to just checking reviews on some place like Amazon.

Re: WIFI monitoring of RTC 1000

Don't know of an attachment for the RTC1000, of course there are other controllers, but would be expensive. Here's what I did in a similar situation: bought a webcam and set it up so it pointed directly at the display on the controller. Then I could access the cam via the internet and check on the t...

Paragon A-66B

Normally, when the cone trips the kiln and turns it off, the kiln takes a while to cool from there to below 1100F or so, where it will no longer move. If you open the lid after the cone trips, then you're cooling it faster. Just close the kiln before it gets to 1100 or so. You don't need to do this ...

Re: Paragon A-66B Glass Firing Schedule

Back in the dark ages of fusing (the 1990's) I used a kiln with a kiln sitter. It worked fine for simple coasters or jewelry sized pieces. Basically I would fire and then let the kiln sitter turn off the kiln. After that, I'd just let the kiln cool naturally without opening. The main issue with this...

Re: Denver kiln

Never owned one, but Denver kilns have a reputation for not holding up over the long term. What does this mean? [sorry for my poor English] Does it wear out quickly?? i.e. Does not last long? Or Does this mean that it can't fire high? It means that the metal rusts and the fiber falls apart or droop...

Re: Annealing temperature

Bullseye's recommended annealing temperature was established at 960F/516C around 2000, then changed to 900F/482C about a decade later. As far as I know that's still their recommendation. (It's what's written in current versions of both Tech Notes 4 and Tip Sheet 4, as well as their Annealing Chart f...

The number of layers depends on the darkness of the powder, but in general we use about 4 grains thick.

Re: sgraffito

For any of you who do sgraffito, do you use powdered frit or paint. If you use frit do you mix it with aloe to paint it on. I was taught years and years ago but have completely forgotten. Thank you for any help. You can use either powdered frit or enamel/paint. Generally, we use powder dry and pain...
