I've heard the story in person, and read it in the Bathroom Reader, about the student at Chuck that wanted to warm the mold to pick up cane. The TA was more interested in t&a and blew off his questions. So the kid sticks the mold, that was welded to a plate with all the other molds, into the kiln to warm up. 30 min later the TA finds the puddle in the bottom of the kiln. I was always curious who tf put the set point high enough to melt aluminum.

That being said, I had an instructor that used an aluminum cane plate as a pastoreli on forks, that did not end well.
