Hi everyone, I’ve moved the car out of the garage, did some spring
cleaning, and am finally ready to complete the setup of my workshop.
I’m now at the point where I need to decide on my torch system and
implement any safety features. I would really appreciate tips from the
group, especially from members who have workshops at home.
Has anyone heard of any possible dangers from keeping & using a
torch, running a closed kiln and an ultralite kiln, and performing any
other heat-based activities in a garage? I know it’s pretty important
to make sure the torch never leaks and I’ll have fire extinguishers
around, just in case. (Does it make a difference what kind of fire
extinguisher to have on hand?)
I bought a satellite kiln. The directions must be pretty old because
it says to have an asbestos pad under the kiln before firing it up.
What do you use to put under your kiln? What kind of table do you use
for your kiln (metal? wood?) It seems like welding curtains and pads
are the closest subsitute that I could find for the asbestos pad but
it seems like overkill to me.
Any and all tips are greatly appreciated! You can reply directly to
me if this question has been asked before.
Thanks, very very much, in advance!
