I've heard or read something about drilling holes into kiln shelves to get a
more even firing.
Does anyone know more about this? How can you drill holes into kiln shelves?
Using a masonry bit? What size holes to drill and how to space them?
Is it worth to try it?
Any information appreciated.

I used shelves with holes manufactured in them when I was doing
workshops in Spain. Euclid's had some of these shelves and I bought mots
of what they had. They said they were discontinuing to carry them for
lack of interest. I think they work great for raku kilns especially but
I also use them in some bisque firings as well.
They have 2cm holes in them (about 7/8") about every 1.5 inches.
