Wanted – Kiln shelves and Props

Jess turner wants some kiln shelves and props for a wood fired kiln reaching temperature of 1350 c, and second hand fire bricks for the same temperature. I have added it to the  Classified section of For Sale. I have made no real effort to encourage For Sale and Wanted 2nd Hand Equipment so far, but if anyone thinks there is a need for this I am happy to get going and ‘add the ads’ There will be no cost for 3 months until it gets going and then only a small admin cost  (£5, $8 or 6euros).

So if anyone has some Kiln shelves and props for Jess, either let me know or look at the For Sale, Classified section of the site and contact him direct.  And any more ads for second hand equipment, to buy or sell, just email me with the details at classified@studiopottery.co.uk and I will add it to the site.

A number of people have suggested this would be a useful addition, so I hope it gets going and we can have a really useful market place. Any thoughts or suggestions, just let me know.
