Posted 10 May 2013It seems to me that the discussion on this thread (and a couple of others, recently) took a turn from being from more than an honest difference of opinion.
The problem was, that RD Wolff made a blanket, black and white statement, and that besides Political "Politeness', that's the one thing that Off Center hates. It was the same with the thread on pug mills, where the claim was made, that no one needs to use pug mills, and the discussion of clay and glaze safety, where it was stated, that all of us NEED to exercise more caution, from the obviously toxic things, we work with.
In both cases, posters made matter of fact comments, on things that were just the opposite. The only way you could annoy Off Center more, is if crept into his studio, and glued a splash pan to his wheel.
Sorry, must have missed the memo.

Posted 8 May 2013What exactly am I wrong about? Am I wrong to say not all kilns are built the same? Is that what you're saying? It's hard to tell since you sound like an ad for Olympic Kilns. Yes, except for dimensions most firebrick are pretty much the same. You've already made it clear that you know that. So are construction bricks but that doesn't make every house the same.
You are dissing me right here with your insulting comment: "you bought a CHEAP kiln," you don't know what you are talking about. I have checked this kiln out with many hours of research and reading reviews on all brands of kilns over months of time. I know what I am looking at when it was delivered and I examined every part of it as someone who knows about engineering, mechanics and materials, and it's an excellent kiln and excellent package deal all around.
Aside from MINOR differences between kilns, they are all basically the same componemts- a pile of firebricks cemented together, a controller, and a cover. This is not a Yugo v/s Rolls Royce here!
FYI, their warrantee is longer than one year, I didn't buy the cheaper Medallian series, I bought the cone 10 kiln with 3" brick, that's a 3 year warrantee:
QuoteOlympic delivers Performance - we make our kilns for easy maintenance and repair. Our stackable electric kilns will come apart in sections for easy movement without removing the electrical boxes from the kiln.
Warranty for cone 8/2300°F kilns is 2 years and for cone 10/2350°F our warranty extends 1 year. We stand behind our product because our reputation depends on it. We are proud of our work and we want you to feel the same.
How dare you insult me the way you have with your "fine and dandy" dismissing comment too! I'm done with you bud, go buy the used kiln and enjoy it then, no sweat off my backside!
Who is Bye?
My guess it is RD Wolff . . . who seems to have left the forum.
