vender for a gas burner by Lathe Dog
Where can I buy an atmospherically-entrained gas burner with about 10,000 Btu/hr max output when using propane? If a burner puts out, say, 10,000 Btu/hr with natural gas, how much will it put out with propane, at the same supply pressure? Thanks in advance. Tom

Glaze Mixing Ques. by Doug Porter
Why does glaze have to sit for 24 hours after being mixed? My husband asked me this question and I didn't have an answer for him (besides "that's what I was told to do"). LMac

large tiles cracking by Monika Schleidt
I have this very smooth, slick clay, which feels very much like porcellain, but is tan colored and sinters at 1100C.
