Stainless steel in kiln

Stephen Richard

Reading your post, I am not clear whether these are tubes or rods.  Tubes will be fine.  Rods – well, I not so sure.  That is a lot of metal to heat and cool.  Really, if they are 1″ rods I would not use them – not only because of the danger to the shelf, they will be really difficult to heat without breaking the glass.

Second, the heavier the circular metal, the more likely they will react to any uneveness, or vibration. placing pieces of ceramic fibre at the sides will prevent them rolling.
