Kiln progress. 1-19-10

I am trying to get the chimney finished before I have to send my fancy mixer back. The problem is the day after the mixer was delivered the temperature dropped to zero and has stayed there for most of the week. The material I had put in is frozen solid and the blades won’t move.

To pass the time I prepared the next load of crushed bricks. My crusher is also experiencing problems. The roller that is movable in order to adjust the distance between the other roller doesn’t want to stay put. I disassembled it twice yesterday and re-set the bolts but it still moved out of position enough to disengage the gear. I am going to try new bolts and if that doesn’t work I will have it welded in place.

The offending bolt.

Dog that won't hunt.
