hi deb, i don't know if you remember helping me out a year or two ago about how to fire larger pieces, but it worked like a charm. i have a different question that you might be able to help with. i want to be able to fire pieces that are going to take more heat than i'm presently using and i'm going to be building a new ventilation system to handle it. can you give me any help with what kind of fan i should get? we're thinking of building a large come format over the work space but i'm not sure what kind of fan to get. any help or direction you can give would be greatly appreciated. hey, will you be at the conf in toronto? anne
