New kiln posts arrived yesterday. These are from a company called Carolex. Anyone heard of them? The enclosed note said, "We are sending samples (samples?) of our round 3",5", and 6" posts that we use in high fire kilns. We will be making the 8" and 10" next and firing them shortly thereafter. We will ship when ready. We are sorry for the problems you have had and hope this will correct them. Wishing you a happy holiday."
Well, thank you Olympic for getting these to me, I guess. I have never seen posts like these. I did a Google search for kiln post and not one image of these came up. What do I have here?!?! Has anyone ever used these or seen them? They are so fat, they are going to take up even more room in my already limited size kiln. I have only used the square kind, but these do look substantial, so we'll give them a try as soon as the holidays are over and I will let you know how it goes........it's like a soap opera, isn't it!? Stay tuned.................
PS: After this post, I called Carolex to ask them about these posts, that apparently can fire to ^12, the owner had nothing but nice things to say about Olympic and seemed genuinely eager to help out in any way, he was very nice,
so............... the story continues :)
