  • Anyone curious to see how porcelain tableware is made?

    I was chatting with my pal JimSawyer a few days back and he expressed interest in seeing some photos of how porcelain ceramics are made in the company where I'm currently working and it occured to me that in over forty years in the business I really haven't got a record of modern day ceramic production anywhere other than in my head.

    Jim suggested that this might be something to post in the Off Topic section for general interest so before launching into what could be a longish set of slides can I float the question 'Is there interest in seeing this info'

          That would be great Jim. We take most things for granted these days and never give a thought to the manufacturing process. Maybe we'll get to see you at work too or is that a little too far fetched? - Lol

                Just kidding, of course. I think it would be great. I like those Discovery shows too.

                  Can anybody ever have too much knowledge?

                  There's a fine line between woodworking and insanity, I'm just not sure which side of the line I'm on!

                    Yes by all means Jim, I would really enjoy that.

                        Too early to leave, too late to call in.

                                Tony have fun, There is a great lightburn forum on face book also for Orture I would assume. What size did you get?

                                Linda, With the laser engraver I just jumped in and then realized I had bought something that was very limiting and started to research after the fact. I know better, but...

                                Good guesses, but no. It’s very useful and “outside the box.”

                                My first thought is to hold the small paint bottles, but the holes are not symmetrically spaced....

                                I am of the older crowd, LOL , I was blessed with a father, old world German tool maker and a Mom that turned into a techno junky. She got into computers in her mid 70's and digital embroidery, started digitized music that she played using computer software. she was a seamstress, by profession.
