It's Back by popular demand! Hint of the Week January 24th

HERE ARE SOME GENERALLY GOOD IDEAS

· Mark all of your plastic clay bags with a “Sharpie”, even if they are still in the boxes. Mark the cone number (∆) &/or what clay it is. It is also a good idea to put your name or initials on the bag. We often find clay left out, or get donated clay, or abandoned clay, etc. If we don’t know what it is, we really can’t use it, & if you forget what it is you may not be able to use it either. If you put the wrong clay in the wrong kiln firing the earth will tips off its axis.

· Mark all of your tools with a “Sharpie” or some other way. There is not a day goes by that we don’t find an unmarked rib, wire, pin tool, etc. It’ll save you time & money if you can get your tools back. There is also a lost & found drawer in the green admin area.

· When you dump out clay water from your slop bucket or wheel tray pour it through the screen & you’ll catch those tools before they disappear into the “black hole” in our trough. Since we’ve put that screen there the folks that empty out the trough are finding significantly fewer tools. Although lost tools are an incentive for folks to go “tool diving” while emptying the trough.
