Re: Paragon Pearl 22 - where are the feet located?

There should be four rubber feet at the bottom corners of the kiln. The front ones are just inside the panel that juts out. For my Pearl 22's -- and at one time I had five of them -- I didn't buy the overpriced stand from Paragon. I built my own stands out of plywood and 2 x 4's. Yes, plywood. Never...

Re: Cracking during slump

Is the piece conforming to the mold or is it still flat? Is the piece split in two (or three) or just cracked down the middle? Curved crack? Can't tell from the photos, since they're just partial pics. Round bowl mold? (Have the BE number?) Was the mold on the shelf or just on posts? How close are y...

Re: Cracking during slump

Got a photo of the break?

I'm a bit puzzled by your comment that the edges cracked and were not sharp. If your top temperature was only 1200F, then that shouldn't be hot enough to round the edges.

Also, a description of the mold you used would help.

Re: Schedule for slumping large piece, 9mm thick?

That schedule would probably work. For over stainless I usually watch the piece and just hold until it's done the way you want it, however long that takes. 75 on the way up is conservative, but justifiable on a piece that large. I assume you're not really close to the top elements. Bullseye would sa...

Re: firepolish for Pressed Glass

Generally I sandblast then fire to around 1350 to 1375F with a short hold. At that temperature it shines but It doesn't really roll the edges. Would probably work ok if you didn't sandblast, but sandblasting gives you a better finish. For powder on top you would need to go higher to get the powder t...

Always the clear Uro with BE, no problems. Sometimes the other colors. Only problem I ever experienced was with one of the Uroboros reds. Not surprising since reds can be difficult to make.

Re: Schedule for kiln pressed glass - for Uroboros

I never fired Uro 90 that much (if any) different than Bullseye. The same schedule ought to work.

Re: Graham Stone

I would imagine Richard Whiteley knows him. I know that Brock once told me he had slept on Graham's couch, so he must have known him as well. As for me, I have spoken to Graham several times on the telephone, back in the early 1990's, trying to get permission to print his book in the US. They were b...

Re: Heat resistant Tape

That makes sense, just not sure why it would be better than fiber paper.

Most high temperature tape that I'm aware of is only rated to 500F, but might hold up longer insulated by glass. Google high temperature tape.

Re: gasket material

You could patch that with kiln cement/brick mortar.

Alternatively, you could replace the entire brick, but the mortar would be easier.

Add a layer of fiber paper on top would probably not help that much anyway.
