I was so impressed with George Wright's formula that I copied into
my files. Never got a chance to try it, because I can't locate any nylon
fibers locally. Anyway:

Custer Feldspar 3.97
Bentonite 0.79
Kenucky Ball 15.87
Lincoln 60 Fireclay 39.67
Silica sand (70 mesh) 15.87
grog (20 mesh) 23.80
nylon fiber 0.04
