kiln update 2
I did a bisque fire last night and all went well. 9 hours and 15 minutes to complete. The cone I put in fell over but I am pretty sure things all went ok. The new board sends out errors if the thermocoupler doesn't function correctly.
And, as I speak, I am doing a cone 6 glaze fire. I glazed a bunch of little test tiles with the glazes I bought. Did several with just the glaze and several with combos. It will be fun to see what things look like tomorrow morning!
