If yours is anything like mine, then you can all but fire a pot with the
darn thing. I was using it to dry some test tiles once, and decided to
experiment a bit, so I coated one of the wet tiles in some borax. After a
fit of steaming the borax puffed up like popcorn, then started to melt.
Didn't melt completely, but it did enough to form a crusty shell on the test

Hey, watch channel 7 Sunday evening, They came last week and taped a
segment of "Pride of Texas" and got a lot of footage of me throwing some 2
gal. churns...I can't pick up the station from here, so they are going to
send me some tape, but I don't know when.
