Being such a rubbish potter at the minute. Hardly getting into the studio at all :( Need to get my lazy ass moving after work instead of relaxing.

    Me too, another health problem popped up and I have two groups of relatives coming to stay with us until Oct. 7. I guess I am just overwhelmed.

    Sometimes I feel like quitting my day job but all advice seem to say that is the last thing you do :( Hope you can recover from your health issue ASAP Denice

Thermocouple chip collected and wired up with an old thermocouple. I hope this one is a type K. Can't see to find any markings.

    It's amazing how easy the stuff works. Spent very little cash and I have a computer reading temperature from the thermocouple. Now the hard part is doing something useful with the data. If I knew how to do it you could make a 13A 240v kiln for like £200

    I was thinking about that myself. I need a small test kiln, and it would be really neat to program it all and build it myself. Not sure if it would be worth the effort but it would be a cool project.

Been on holiday in Rhodes since wednesday. Beautiful place, interesting time to be in Greece. People have no idea what is going to happen.

    Oh man that is hot, I don't think it gets much over 80 in here. Three big windows I can open and extraction unit. Doesn't really help when you have to scrape tile adhesive off the wall.

First time firing a gas kiln and it was a 6ft by 6ft beast. Not the best idea to start firing at 01:30 feeling tired now.

    You are in for a lonng stretch of kiln-baby-sitting. I normally figure 7 hours to Cone 10 once reduction has started.

    This was posted after the fact of firing :D luckily there was three of us so I did manage a few 20min naps through the night. Started at 1:40am and cone 8 was flat down about 1pm. Probably a little slow to begin with but being cautious is good to start with. No idea how the reduction went as I am still not sure what reduction is. Has gasses igniting out the bottom peep so fingers crossed!
