In Topic: Electric Kiln Temp Regulation

How much cooler is the bottom of the kiln?  1/2 cone?  Full cone? More?

Double check to make sure your lower elements are in good repair and firing like they should.


Good luck.  :)

Wow.  What a wonderful video!  Thank you so much for sharing with us here. It was well worth the time.  There are so many positives to take from it but first, I am going to make a slip gun.    :)

In Topic: How Do You "open Up"

Bracing with my right hand, I use my middle finger on my left hand to open up to maybe 1 Kg.  After that I'll use both my fore and middle finger.  Fore, middle and ring finger for 3 - 4 Kg.   I have never thought about using my thumbs.  I have seen people do it.  Should give it a try.

Again, thanks for sharing, John.

Is this ware you are showing us "once" fired, or is there a biscuit fire as well?
