Still experimenting, December 7, 2013 4 stars
Pros
A smaller mold is good as I can't use all the product of many larger molds.
Cons
You must use Fiber Paper - 1/4 inch and bended around corners or the glass will be extremely difficult to get out.
Other Thoughts
I also have had problems getting thin enough slices. I use a tile saw for most patterns because the Taurus 'balks' and these slices are pretty thick..
Skutt GM1414 Rolling Stand

Skutt GM1414 Rolling Stand

Item# 71321D
Must Have, August 18, 2012 5 stars
Pros
The stand is great - saves on wear and tear of your back! The stand which comes with the kiln does raise it off the floor but not nearly enough and that stand does not roll. The wheels, which can be locked, makes it much easier to move the kiln away from a wall, sweep under it and so forth. This is a big kiln and weighs a ton - the stand makes it so much easier to move!

Large Angle Dam Mold

Large Angle Dam Mold

Item# 806190
Easy to use, August 18, 2012 5 stars
Pros
You can get the pattern bar out of the mold which is not so with the rectangle shaped one.. This is a quick alternative to making a pattern bar without using fiber products. Use plenty of release. It is a bit more challenging to use the triangular pieces in a design for a bowl or plate unless you are pretty accurate in slicing with a tile saw.
Cons
None.
Other Thoughts
Nice product.
