When the stuff hits the fan. Empty When the stuff hits the fan.

LOL

Ok I am SAFE

But I did 3 pours today.... on the last one ( which failed in more ways than 1 ) I had about a oz of silver in my crucible which is about a teaspoons worth of liquid molten metal.

When after 5 hours of constant use with one graphite crucible it decided to blow out as I was holding it in the air going towards the furnace which was already turned off.

Well... I got Menhune's pour done... that looks good. I know someone on here might like it.

I got 2 of the 4 xmas decorations done. But the last flask with the investment in failed .... really bad. It looks like the wax came detached from the spru, so yes... total failure.

Anyway I bit the bullet and I have ordered and paid for a new furnace. Suspect Suspect Suspect Suspect Suspect Suspect

All donations kindly appreciated ... I accept 50 pound notes lol! lol! lol!


well that is me buggered now for a while. No shopping any time soon. But I have a new Kiln coming. Horrah... I can actually do something and it wont take hours!!!!

Hopefully I can sent this off to be serviced and repaired. But I lost all trust in it.
oh I never really explained... it was taking ages to heat up.... you cant keep your crucible in that long.
And it never really go to temp.

Well, they say bad things come in threes - I should smash a plate or something.
Glad you're ok.

Well finally some good news.
I contacted the company who I am a " authorised distributor for " and they are sending me a free crucible (£32 worth)
And they will also take back my furnace and repair it for a small fee. Which in my book is great. I will have 2 fully functioning 100oz furnaces and one 33 oz furnace ... that with my table furnace... yep I am happy. It has cost me a arm but I still have both legs. Twisted Evil Twisted Evil Twisted Evil
