Step by step...

Step by step my kiln is coming together.  Nothing fancy mind you, just a 55 gallon diesel fuel drum.  Today I made 35 two inch buttons to hold the ceramic fiber, now I need to find the wire to fasten them in with.

I also have received the Pyrometer, thermocouple and ceramic protection tube that I ordered.  

On Sunday afternoon, a neighbor will help me by cutting the drum - a lid for the top, and a hole near the bottom for the burner.  All I need now is the ceramic fiber, the burner (I have my eye set on a small 70,000 BTU venturi), and the wires to hold the buttons in place.  Slowly but surely.
