Grandpa tries to keep up....


Finally bit the bullet and joined the 21st century.  Will probably ruin all my glazes with the dreaded 0.1% accuracy   Shit....

What's next??? Pug mill?

Welcome to the 21st Century. Grandma here, having returned to pottery after a 25 year hiatus, is going to try to mix ^6 glazes for the electric kiln after having started using commercially available ones that fail half the time anyway.
Being a slap dash dollop and splash type of cook, I'll probably make some terrific irreproducible glazes occasionally along with some food on the table -types.
Maybe I should start with the digital scale with that generous bucket rather than my triple beam that demands more attention than my aging brain can accommodate. LOL

I appreciate all your encouraging instructional videos. Best Wishes.

You go Christine!

Dennis - I sold out there too! Got a used Venco!

Glad you joined the 20th century, even if a bit late. :-)
When I watched your video the other day I said to Jim "Why doesn't he buy a digital scale for around $20?". We must have a psychic connection. :-)

John Britt said...

Hey June,

Well got this one for about $130 but you need a 2000 g calibration weight too so about $168. But you gotta keep up in this world!

Hope things are settled with you guys! Miss you.

Miss you too John! My heart is still in the mountains, but we are settling in and getting used to the rainy winter weather here in the valley.It makes up for it with all those sunny, no rain summer days!
I love my over 30 year old gram scale. I splurged for the cadillac model in the four figure range; but it's accurate to 0.00 or so and I can weight 300 grams at a time. It is such a huge time saver,particularly for people like us who love glaze testing!:-)

Hi John, any chance of getting more details on the scales as I am in the market myself?
cheers
P.S love the blog

Oops, just realized I said my scale weighs 300 grams - left out a zero. It weighs over 3000 grams.
