So, the new rocket stove that Ernie is lighting - where is that?

I really like this video, it's a great anticipation builder!

Wow. I wonder if it will make stoneware (cone 10)?

I've done a fair amount of wood fired pottery, but it's usually a huge kiln that needs to be fed massive quantities of wood for at least 24 hours, round the clock. I'm actually drinking tea from a wood fired mug right now. Of course, almost all of this experience was over 20 years ago. . .

I'm sure I supported the kick starter. I can't watch the video, I can't find a live link or arrow.

I'm really interested in seeing it since the post above about Ernie lighting the rocket fired kiln. Nate and I worked hard on that thing, and I had to leave before we got to the good part!

I have a little shard that was fired on the first firing, and I would love to see the finished kiln and Ernie lighting it!

Can anyone help me?

Julia, It might do cone ten in some parts of the kiln. As noted above I was involved in building the kiln. When I came home, I talked to a life long potter, now in his 60s, and a college degree ceramacist about the project. I was really excited about it.

Cone 10 is about 2500 degrees, for I don't know how long, but it seems you know that part. The well built rocket easily attains that temperature. Not that you could load a batchbox for a 24 hour burn, but a batchbox certainly makes things convenient for situations where you can't tend the rocket continuously.

We built the kiln with brick inside, and my friend the 40 year potter says it won't hold up over the long term for the high cone 10 temperatures. He said something about heat stress, and if/when I build one I will follow his advice and use fire brick to line the inside chamber.


Everybody:
I still have not found a live link to watch the Care and Feeding 30 minute video.

Was it a short interval availability?

Thekla,

All of the kickstarter supporters were emailed the video. Are you saying that you did not get the email?

Hi Paul, I don't think I got the email. I've looked in the trash and the spam. When the discussion began, it kept referring to the link, which I never found. Is it too late for me to get it emailed to me?

It was sent out via kickstarter. Are you getting the other kickstarter update messages?

If you go to kickstarter, you can see the update message, complete with the link.

Paul, I guess I don't pay enough attention to kickstarter updates. I know I am getting kickstarter updates from the go sun grill guys which I also backed and has been delayed.

But, I went to kickstarter searched for you and got everything I needed. Tahnks so much!

Please ignore I read your advice above how to find on kickstarter cheers

----------------

Hi, I think I am still having issues, I did donate to the kick starter for the 8 DVD download but my email address on the forums was different to my kick starter one. Is there any way this can be fixed so I can access this video please?

Many thanks,

Mike

Hello, all!
I have been reading these forums for awhile and this will be my first post.
I recorded a video of how i start and load my 6" batchbox. I just use a match
At 0:42 you will see a flash and hear change in burning sound - this is when the flames reach port and heatriser. Usually this is even faster to come by....



If the thread seems wrong, just move it somewhere else...

For fun i added my voice to recording. It is funny how decent is my english when reading and writing. But it is obvious that i don't have many english conversations I sound like some german guy...

Have fun watching!

Klemen
