    Has anyone had any experience with Pottery Supply House in Oakville?
    http://www.pshcanada.com/kilnbuild&repair.htm

    I see they offer individual K23 bricks, Kanthal wire, wool, high temperature mortars, thermocouples and other goodies for your forge/oven/kiln project.

    Dan I bought my Kanthal A1 and the ceramic tubes to go through the bricks at PSH. I had no problems at all and good prices as well.

    Thanks Frank. This is good to know. Many people have asked where to get IFBs.

    I got the bricks at a local ceramic kiln place. They were close to the same price and no shipping

    Hey Dan, I frequently deal with them for my job and have for the last 10 years. Their service is always great and they usually ship pretty quick. Their prices are good too, for most items. They do have more stuff than is on their website so if there's something you need and don't see, call and make sure. Also, I know you're an advocate of this, but remember to ask about their shipping rates, because you're in Alberta, correct?
    If you are buying large quantities though they're not always the best price for stuff like mortar, IFB's, wool etc. When I buy large amounts of refractories I've bought them through Vesuvius, who specialize in refractories for the glass and metal melting industries and they have an office in Edmonton. Also if there are any glass blowing studios or pottery studios close to you go visit them and ask them where they get their refractories. They should definitely be able to tell you where to get stuff like that for the best price.
    Sorry, bit of a ramble, hope that helps.

    Shipping a pound of Kanthal via UPS to Alberta for $15. That's fair in my book. Jay was a great to work with. Recommended.

    I bought my kaowool from PSH. They pounded hard me on shipping for 2 sq ft of blanket. I would get an estimate from them before I ordered again.
