I'm confused, is it charcoal or coal?

Your exterior needs a lime coat. If there isn't a positive flow of moisture towards the outdoors then what you see is exactly what will happen. The lime will wick the water out of the structure and walls keeping them in much better shape. Clay is not an appropriate finish for exteriors in any environment aside from deserts.

I'll give it a go

It failed, I was directed to login on permies before I could go to the paypal link. It did work when I logged in but I assume that wasn't the hope.

My two cents.  I just bought a used year 200 John Deere 4700 with a front end loader and backhoe.  I've had it for two days and put 10 hours on it.  I cannot tell you how much I have gotten done in two days.  This is the best thing to happen to my farm yet!  I've slaved for a year and a half trying to clean up and start up my farm on hand labor and I warrant to say that in the last two days, I got just about as much done, without nearly as much backache.  That being said, I'm in hock to the bank for the next 5 years.

Bruce, I think the plans are pretty easy for an equipment bar if you but the shank.  I'm getting a simple one priced out to me now.  I've heard the shanks are around $500

I get this question all the time at my ceramics studio and the answer is always either give up on it or call Sotheby's.  If you're willing to pay 100's of dollars for ceramic repair on the clay level then go for it, otherwise accept the FACT that once broken, a ceramic body will never be healed into as strong and foodsafe a manner as its condition was.
