    HELP - how does this kiln work

    A wee update: i just tried it again with the following set up within the kiln. It reached a kinda orange glow ( seen through the peep hole) after about 40 min. Sadly it switched off again by the time I checked about 15 min later. I suspect it’s the extension cord I have been using ( as the kiln is outside ) - the kiln plug was very warm and the extension cord had tripped. Will find a heavy duty cord first before moving the very heavy kiln nearer a socket.

    Lol, yeah I saw the science museum one! I did fire it and it did heat up, even got it to orange glow, all elements were on! The problem is it just shut off after a couple of hours which meant the glaze wasn’t really affected apart from the white turning gray ( see previous photo). The thermocouple is intact but had like a ceramic tube over it which I took out as it’s base is broken a bit.

    Thanks Sputty, that’s great! Here is a photo of the instructions ( I don’t have but are sold with the actual thingy on eBay just now) . Still trying to figure out how to make the photos small enough to be able to upload them.
