    I have a set of three that a potter friend of mine made for me and the only issue is the one that Mike mentioned. The followers shrank more in the firing than the mold did and don’t fit tightly. I just got a small sheet of 3/4″ thick HDPE (High Density Polyethylene, the stuff they make cutting boards out of) and cut a properly sized follower out of it. I used a circle jig on my router table but you can use most any wood cutting tool, the stuff is relatively soft and cuts very easily. Past that, I absolutely love mine. I’ve attached a picture of one in use. It’s from before I made the HDPE follower so you can see the size difference.

    There seems to be something amiss with the forum setup. I’m already registered, but I still see the Register Now button and bottom section.
