Saw blade

I'm ready for a new 10" tile saw blade. I have checked the archives but couldn't find reports on MK lapidary blades. Anybody using this grade of blade or know anything about it. Main use would be pattern bar cutting. Daily.

Thank you,

Jack

If they can handle the compressor, the sander shouldn't bother them.

I recirculate my water with a small pump but that won't work unless you are using the same grit all the time. Water supply is on my todo list.

About glueing the bails on. What glue and how well does it hold. I have some E6000, will that work? I also have some UV curing glue and plenty of UV here in Utah. Do glues really hold for the long haul?

Stainless does not flake. If you are getting or you have seen flaking the steel you are working with is not stainless. Phil I haven't tried any yet. I am about to buy some for molds, etc. Was just wondering if one series, say 400, is better than another, 300 series. Or if one is as good as another....

rj- you have to dam the strips pretty well- 1" of glass is going to look for gaps to leak out of. I've used fiberboard and cut up shelf dams but prefer my stainless steel troughs- line with fiberpaper, plug the ends and go. As to firing, you can go up pretty fast. I hold at slump temp (1240) for a ...

Bert, I leave my floor bricks exposed where they're not covered by the fiber shelf or smaller kiln shelves. I'm running very close to 900 watts per cf and the kiln responds very fast. (40 to 1650 in 50 minutes empty) Is the blanketing on the floor strictly for energy savings or there other advantage...

You can get info in Glassnotes and A Glassblowers Companion. http://www.glassnotes.com/ http://www.joppaglass.com/ The link below shows a kiln I built. 3x5x1 inside dimensions for a volume of 15 cubic feet. It draws 56 amps. I have it on a 70 amp circuit. You don't say whether you mean a 40 amp brea...

Victoria,

The only advantage to my small wheels is the small turnaround space. I would like to see your pictures whan you ge a chance. I want to install roller guides on the lid and a pin/socket so it hits the same place every time.

Paul, The kiln usually asks if I'd like to go out for some fresh air. These days it's the other way around, my wife calling out to the studio. :twisted: In my case I could monitor from the house instead of being in the garage. But someday... Unfortunatly you will need a controller for each kiln. If ...

Paul, The purpose of the PC is to store numorous firings, record firings, and have the convenience of setting temps with a mouse and keyboard. The CAL will do the controlling. The PC will tell it which firing to do and give you a time/temp graph for later troubleshooting. You can also chain kilns to...

Post the brand and model number of what you bought on Ebay and I can probably help you out. I've only bought one controller on Ebay but I got a very good deal and it still works a year later. Email me if you want. A link to the page of the auction might help also.

In the power circuit is a Furnas 75Amp definite purpose contactor. This contactor can be activated by the 9500P alarm a...

Not sure about the design of the Skutt Pinto but in most cases wrapping insulation around your kiln will cause the outside surfaces to get much hotter than they are designed for. My older kiln has a painted outside surface and I left a piece of blanket on the lid once and the paint on the lid began ...

Does that mean " when you hear the smoke alarm, dinner is served"?

It means that dinner is served when dinner quits smoking or the pizza arrives, whichever comes first.
