Sorry, I meant per individual post not in total. Each one only lets me upload a max of 500kb per post and I noticed you were over this. Maybe I should upload to the gallery and then link somehow, have to look into it. Don't mean to go too off topic.

 

Cone 14 does sound like an amazing amount of work, I am sure you can make it there though.

I thought kiln shelves were a solid thing, not an outer and inner layer but I also thought there was only one type of shelf till a few months ago.

Really nice to see it being built.

 

Can you post over 500kb per post from being a moderator or is there another trick to that?


In Topic: Kiln Amps Labeling Conflict

You could try taking off the extra ring for a smaller kiln till you decide what to do. How many elements are in each section? Do you know the resistance of each element and how they are wired i.e. series or parallel. Once you know this it is easy to work out the amp draw and change things or just work out in theory what is meant to be happening with the electricity. What cone are you wanting to fire it to?

 

I cant see how the wires bridge each section.

 

I would pay $50 for just the structure. That is only £30, enough for 2 maybe 3 bags of clay.

Somebody could have put in the wrong elements or something wrong with the wiring. Could be an extra ring too.

 

Is the 45 stating operating amps or max amps for the switch? My guess is they might have a rating like a relay but I have never used or seen a kiln sitter before.

 

Do you know the resistance of the elements and how they are wired up? $50 is cheappp. Hard to tell the size of the thing but it looks similar to my 30amp 240v kiln.
