In Topic: Some Restrictions On Posting To Stop Spam?

15 April 2015 - 07:49 AM

About three out of four new threads here are spam. That will drive readers away. I suggest that the first one or two posts from new members should be moderated.

In Topic: Under-Powered Relays And A Defective Controller

10 February 2015 - 08:35 AM

The buzzing noise you are describing may be the sound of the heating elements. The normal buzzing of elements lessens and then disappears as the elements get hot.

 

What error message appeared on the controller?

 

The DTC 800C was made by Bartlett Instruments for Paragon Industries.

In Topic: Photographic Records Of Your Work Burying You Alive, Too?

18 December 2014 - 09:03 AM

This is for Microsoft computers. Click once on an image icon in a folder. That will highlight it but not open it. Then keep the mouse cursor over the image. The pixel count will display along with the date the picture was shot. I use that trick all the time.

 

I sort pictures in sub-directories, or folders. The main folder is simply "Photos." At home my sub-directories under Photos are the years 2010, 2011, 2012, etc. I have many photo sub-directories at Paragon. I could never stay organized without them. I never keep anything in Microsoft's default "My Documents" or "My Photos." Directories and sub-directories are on the main hard drive, which in my case is d:\.

In Topic: Envirovent Suddenly Not Venting Fumes

The intake and exit holes must be of the correct number, size, and location in your kiln. You should double-check to make sure.

 

Are you sure the motor is spinning freely? Is it the correct voltage?

 

Is the lid flat against the kiln at higher temperatures? If the hinge binds, the front of the lid can rise half an inch.

 

Does the vent flapper outside open freely?

You are an amazing artist. I say that with complete honesty. The detail in your drawing is remarkable.
