  1. Here's a link to the pdf. I'll leave it up for 48hrs. https://www.dropbox.com/s/r0gq2jej1esyb60/SF3000 Series II.pdf?dl=0
  2. Hi, thanks so much for taking the time to find that for me. Glad to say I now have the correct manual for my controller. Googled Cromartie who are now Cromartie Hobbycraft ( and only just up the road from me) and a very helpful chap called Mark sent me a PDF of the manual! Thanks to everyone for their help. Rob.
  3. That's what I thought I'd try tonight. I'm firing at 250c per hr then 83c for the last 100c. Would be nice to know how to use the controller fully though. Thanks for the advice, I appreciate it. Rob.
  4. Hi I bought an old cromartie kiln recently and am trying to figure out how to use the controller. For a simple bisque fire it's easy enough. The controller lets you program 2 ramps to 2 temps. For anything more complicated you need to link programs which is a new concept to me. I don't have a user manual so would be enormously grateful if somebody could point me in the direction of a manual or explain linking programs and how it might be done with this controller (photo attached). Thanks, Rob.
  5. Great advice, thanks. I'll try the 10:7 ratio and bin my old batts. Thanks again, Rob.
  6. Hi, I know that plaster in clay can cause some quite exciting things to happen during firing yet we use plaster batts on the wheel and to reclaim clay. My question is, how do you stop the plaster from ruining the clay. All my plaster batts, even after a few good washes all leave a white layer if you rub your hand over them when dry, so this must get into the clay. Is it just chunks of plaster that are the problem and not a bit of dust? Also, what ratio plaster to water does everyone use? I've just been eyeballing it till I get what I think is the right consistency. Thanks, Rob.
  7. Thank you, that's incredibly helpful. Hopefully I can get someone to weld me something similar to the original but my bodged version works well enough for the time being. Thanks again, Rob.
  8. That's brilliant, thank you so much. Could you possibly post a picture from a bit further away so I can see the whole assembly? Also, do you know the make and model? Thanks again I'm really grateful to everybody for their help. Rob.
  9. Hi, I just bought this wheel and would be really grateful for some help setting the handle/pedal up properly. I can't find a makers plate anywhere on, or in, the cabinet. The plate on the side with technical info has the model as WHD which I think might be a Wenger. Anyway, as you can see from the photos the handle has come off and although I can bodge it to make it work as a foot pedal I'd really like to set it up how it was originally meant to be. If anyone can give me any ideas of the make/model or even better a manual I'd be truly grateful. If someone has something similar a rough sketch or photo of how you have it set up would be great too. Thanks, Rob.
