Re: Homeowners' Insurance

Lack of disclosure could cause a claim to be denied... I don't think Barry's advice is wise!! full disclosure will put your mind at rest.

Re: Homeowners' Insurance

I did notify my home insurance carrier years ago when I got my first kiln (I now have 4). They came and looked at the set-up, took pictures and I never heard another word about it after that. I think it best to keep no secrets form them in this regard to protect your coverage.

Re: UPS Lost Supplies

UPS leaves parcels on the porch all the time.. they do not even ring the doorbell to let you know something is there. I wonder how much stuff is actually stolen off peoples front porch after the driver has left. They once left a $1000. Bose stereo system on my porch... it sat there for most of one d...

Klause Moje passing

On Sept. 24th Klause Moje passed away at the age of 78 in Australia. He was a major force and influence in the kiln fired glass field. His contribution as an innovator, artist, and educator is well recognized and valued by us all. He will be missed. My sympathy to his family and friends. Don McClennen

Wissmach colours

Anyone know why Wissmach 96 has so few opal colour choices? Mostly greens and blues... don't see any red, orange, purple.. etc. Are they going to add more any time soon :?: Dwindling Spectrum inventories are creating a need!

Re: Compatibility Question

most glass taken from the same sheet will fuse together with good success.. having said that you will likely experience devit from Spectrum especially at the 1500F temp. If you Superspray before fusing this will eliminate that problem. Spectrum "96" was formulated to reduce devit. as well ...

Re: New piece

Don.. superb workmanship.. I'm wondering what the story is behind this piece.. I find the red/white outer border rather jarring but maybe that has something to do with the tractor/construction theme?? =D>

Re: WHAT HAPPENNED HERE?

It looks like you need new elements. With your recent relay replacement, new elements will make it like a new kiln....other than your controller there is not much else to worry about!

Re: How best to cut 6mm glass?

You can easily score and break 6mm glass in strips. Circles can also be done in the normal fashion... the secret is you should (must) use the breaking pliers described by Marty for thick glass. They are available from Bullseye.
