Jakob (firstname.lastname@example.org) sent me these photos of his house and furnace:
The shop, from outside. I am standing in the driveway, and yes, that is a newly replaced plastic sheet...the potato cannon research got a little hectic. :o There will be some heavy construction going on this summer, and the shop is considerably cleaner now that I need the room! These shots are before I cleaned...
The equipment, with a lawnmower in the background for scale purposes...(yeah, right).
The new clay graphite crucible, compared to the smallest of my cast iron pots. That's a five gallon bucket they are sitting on.
The clay crucible, in the stock POS furnace.
The modifications have commenced, and the crucible fits. Sort of.
