Bisques questions for electric kiln

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone,

I'm doing an bisques in an baily's electric kiln. I did an pre heat for 5 hours ( had some dap pieces) and the pre heat started at 10 pm last night 03/17/12 so pre heat should of stopped at 3am today. I came In today at 10 am and the kiln was readiing 1022. Now I came in today at 5:30 pm and my kiln is reading 1179. That seems wrong to read to me, but I wanted to see what all of you felt! Thanks in advance!

I need more info-is that 1179 reading going up in temp or cooling down?????

If its going up then its way to slow-that fire should be way over by 5.30pm If its cooling then you are fine.
