Picked up my enameling kiln today!

After many delays on both sides I managed to get together with mashblock and swap an unknown rack mount amplifier for the kiln. I think the trade went well enough. ;-)

According to what I can find on the web this kiln is a Fire*Brite Copper Kiln and maxes out at around 1600 degrees. With some inserts I can easily make it more efficient. Even if it only goes to about 1200 or so I can still do copper PMC in it along with the enameling the firing times would just be longer.

AND there are _two_ of those baskets of powders.

mashblock I can't thank you enough! :-)

now if you can just trade that bloody vax for something useful
You might have more workspace for your burgeoning MS Slave, I mean Windows collection.
And it would mean mean a bigger beer fridge to store my Guiness!

Re: now if you can just trade that bloody vax for something useful
Bah! If I could get rid of Windows I would in a heartbeat!

As for Guinness I'm down to one bottle. :-( Have to get more not that I'm drinking regularly at the moment. (Beer making is on the list of future activities though. Need a precision freezer control to make good dark beer though.)

As for using a Vax for drinking there's always this:

But only if I get a non-working Vax to make one.

I really hope that lil' amp isn't worth a million bucks...
'cos I'm already eyeballing some of its guts for two different projects. The nifty thumb-crusher-doored chassis is just icing...

Dude it's yours to do with what you will. :-)

I gave up all hold on it when I gave it to you.
