I’ve had my kiln set up since October, and I still learned things from this video. Thank you.
My question is, why is it necessary to apply kiln wash before “burning off” a brand new kiln shelf? You’d think the binders and other components would be better able to burn off without kiln wash on it.

So, we finally got a kiln and decided to put it in our garage. It is still crated. It is on the larger side and comes with a metal stand. I decided I wanted to put casters on the legs after receiving it in order to ease any moving we might ever need to do. Since we couldn't find one large enough to accommodate, we purchased two steel file cabinet dollies with locking casters and screwed them together and intend to mount the kiln on top. Any advice, comments, warnings before we go ahead with this? Thanks in advance.

Do the casters have locks on them, so that the kiln does not roll away in an earthquake?
