BARS (4) Supports used with a container when preparing tiles.

es: BARRAS (4) Soportes sobre el contenedor para preparar los azulejos.

Bar supports are narrow pieces of wood used to support objects that are being prepared over a container. They must be long and narrow, longer than the diameter of the container you are using. Two bar supports are placed to make a bridge and spaced to hold the objects being prepared, so the objects overlap them width-wise, making picking up easier. Always be sure that the bars are completely straight. They are used for supporting tiles being prepared with a glaze-base and for holding a sieve while passing the glaze-base into the container.
