Yes. I fold a dry washcloth and set it on that. Your point about heat retention is excellent, but I started doing it because I did not like sitting ceramic/pottery down on a hard surface. Highly recommend you set something under it.

Good tips and feedback, ITT.  I usually set it on a towel, but put it right on the counter for picture purposes.

I will freely admit I didn't think to use the towel for heat retention, just seemed like a good idea while I was building my lather.  I'll keep it there now based on the advice, many thanks.

That's brilliant! I'll have to remember that. Would it remove easily if you needed it to?

Don't glue it to the scuttle simply place it under the scuttle as you would under a glass and between the table.

Of course, I'm silly. For some reason I was thinking the cork pads that stick to furniture legs to protect floors.

I have a very large scuttle from England well actually its huge, 6 full inches across the top and 2 inches deep.[Image: XBft1tS.jpg][Image: 9BGJDJ3.jpg] I cut up a rubber glove into a circle and glued it to the bottom of the scuttle to prevent scratches.  lifting this out to use occasionally is like getting luggage out of the closet.  works great though. no chance whatsoever it will move on its own. I use many different scuttles as I love ceramic work but prefer my yoresh most of all.  the g 20 started it all for me.

It looks just like mine. I had to look really hard to find the "imperfection" - and a scuttle is essential for winter lathering.

I got the same one which I purchased from GP with a minor blemish in the finish....great price and GREAT SCUTTLE.

Thinking of getting one too, G20, as its bigger.

Any issues of using big brush on this scuttle like the Duke 3 or the Thater 3824s ?

Thanks in advance.

Also, how si the packaging / shipping box ? well protected during shipment ?


Where did you guys purchase the G20 ?

Have you guys also heard of the Sara Moss scuttle :

My G12  was packed very well. Box within a box.
The Moss scuttles are highly regarded as well. Don't think you could go wrong with either. I prefer the overall design of the GP, and the fact it has a plug to help keep the heat in.
As for brush size, I use everything from 20mm-24mm in mine with zero issues.

That's good to know.... I might as well go with G12 then. If the outer dimensions of the g20 and g12 is the same, and the difference is only the reservoir, then its moot and academic about the brush size .. Its good to know that it can take as large brush as Kent BK12. Thanks!

The G12 is big brush friendly also has ridges for that act as a brush agitator.
