Shelf Spacers and Tee Cranks

Tee cranks are refractories for plates that are stacked to form a stable and secure assembly to support the ware during firing. To prevent the foot of the plates sticking to the crank, pins can be rested in slots. Tee cranks have a flat construction that allows ware to be placed by sliding in sideways without rebuilding the crank. For deeper plates use the distance spacer which adds height to the crank legs.
