They all work. I have heard that with the cork, plastic fittings you should leave the pot unglazed where the spout fits so that it has a better grip.

Found a spout (just to give it a test drive) at Bed Bath and Beyond which has the stainless steel spout and rubber fittings (not cork). Not so wild about it, but it will do for my first go around. Now the issue is the best way to measure the neck while throwing to make sure the spout fits after firing. Any tips welcome and thanks again for your help!

Heres how -
cut a 6 inch x 1 1/2 inch x1/4 inch thick piece from a pug do not stretch or handle this much. With a metric ruler mark two lines 10 MM apart exactly with a needle tool in the clay.
Bisque fire then measure write this down as its a straight % that is if it shrinks 4 mm its 4% then glaze fire and measure and write both measurements on the bar and you will now have bisque and glaze shrinkage to work with on the bar You should do this with all your clay bodies -my Porcelain shrinks about 11% so I can now measure a lotion top hole and know what it need to be in the wet stage using simple math.
Hope this is clear enough.

Shouldn't that be 10 CM apart?
4mm shrinkage on 10mm is 40%
I thought you all still used imperial measurement on that side of the pond.
