Posted 19 May 2013As far as silent wheels I have yet to hear one more so than a shimpo VL whisper. These make the pacifica's seem very noisy which they are not.
Brents are up on the noise scale. I own 4 of them so I can say that easy.
Posted 19 May 2013The only way I know is to make a shrinkage bar -you can search here on how to then as its in 10 millimeters you measure it in those various states and its a straight percentage. I have this info wet to bisque and bisque to cone 10 on a few bodies but not the info you need.
Posted 19 May 2013Nelly said (I would wait and buy the Bailey)
I could not agree more
I know of no opne who has regtreted a baily-resale value is always good as well.
Northstars used to have plastic gears in the cheaper ones-I think they corrected that but they lost me as a believer .
I waited and also got a Bailey. Sometimes you get what you pay for. Never looked back.
Posted 19 May 2013Welcome aboard Heidi
Seeing how this thread has gone so far sideways I can maybe bring it around.
I do a lot of albacore fishing each summer and trolling is a good thing not a negitive thing.
We troll for goodness with tuna. I have been call a tuna head for years.
so see a troll can be a great asset.
On another note seeings as you are in Washington State come drop by my booth at the Anacortes Art Festival -1st weekend in August-put a face to the name etc. Bring the husband as I like trolling and a good one who mixes glazes and clay is indeed a rare catch.
As you said being part of the community is really what its all about.
Posted 19 May 2013My success at functional ceramics is to offer as many forms as I can at a show. I make about 40 forms now. When folks ask for something I do not make I will need about 50 or more requests to consider it as then when I do make that form another slower selling form drops off my list.
Honey post have always been on the make list but are never big sellers. I have seen less and less potters make them these days. I used to keep bees so I still use honey and make the pots.
