Want to repair your kiln, but you don't know where to start? Brick repair; what constitutes kiln design; plumbing; burners; kiln evaluation; all of these are in the Handbook.

Your work is good enough, and it sells, but you can't seem to make any profit. How to cut overhead. How to do the same job more economically. How to recover and reuse the heat you have already paid for. How to make the kiln work better. How to take advantage of discounts. This is all Handbook information.

You have just unloaded a firing and you stand before it, disappointed at the number of failed pieces. The information about firing properly is in the Handbook. You don't need to have rejects. Maybe you need to rework the kiln or just a part of it. That's Handbook stuff, too.

That glaze came out so well once, but I can't seem to get it to come out that way again. The Handbook describes how to keep a log and what you need to give you the information for the log. It's like driving without a speedometer.

Gosh, I'd love to build a kiln, but even the books don't tell me enough, and there's no one around here that really knows how. How about a step by step description of building a kiln that works, complete with drawings, photographs, even the information about proper firing. It's in the Handbook.

I could probably buy an elephant and know as much about it as I do about buying a new kiln. You have found a book that tells you how to evaluate a kiln, what to look for, and how to see around a salesman's pitch? It can also tell you what's wrong with the one you have. The Handbook has the answers.

Here is a Handbook that took nearly fifty years to write. There is nothing in here that the authors haven't experienced first hand. 370 pages of solid information and over 60 illustrations, tables, graphs, and photographs. It is the 9th book in their Crafts Series.

From the Publisher:

Adding electronic enhancement to a book by electronic linking cannot be obtained in a printed copy.

Once you have experienced a linked book, you will yearn for the capability every time you open a printed copy.

Since the books are available in print, you may not print from the CD edition.

From the Author:

Writing and publishing is our livelihood. It pays the bills and puts bread on the table. We are not some giant, inanimate, unfeeling, corporate image. Each violation of the copyright law hurts our income.

I pray that the original purchasers will have enough integrity to refrain from duplicating the disk.
