    When I have 10 hours sitting in front of a computer with 3 hours containing any kind of work you get a lot of time to read... Still they pay me to teach myself ceramics so I am happy :D

Cracked open The Kiln Book and I am slowly becoming very confused amongst pressures, flow rates and BTU's

    Same problem when I tried reading it. I really don't know much about gas kilns so I read the book first ignoring numbers. Then I went back and started to make sense of numbers on second go through.

    The burner chapter is pretty dry.

    It is complicated to work out the best pressure and sizes of every piece in the burner. Once I can grasp what everything does in relation to everything else and be able to see the numbers change as I change values of the hardware it should be plain sailing from there.

    Neat video High Bridge! Although I'd like it when people talk in their video... You could comment. You know what? I thought you were middle age, reading your comments here. Don't know why. Thank you for sharing! Tried to post a comment on YT but couldn't...

    Thank you :D I am working towards maybe doing commentary but I only have the rubbish microphone on my camera. Researching into sound set ups is on my to-do. Yes I am only 24 :D hopefully plenty of years left to keep learning.

Any comments on the challenge? Post them on here, would like a bit of feedback. Never really tried to set up much like this before and I forgot I was at work tonight so may have missed something out while trying to multi-task.

    Write the post in your word processor, then cut 'n paste it into the CAD post.

    I only have two as well Crusty, and one is a simple Raku kiln. Nothing wrong with just having two, or even one.

    No need for more than 1 mode of firing. I just love kilns and how they work. Really interests me and I love fire.

Love it when a glaze comes out completely different than it is supposed to. Not sure if it was the different clay or I didn't apply it on the same way.

    Better or worse than expected?

    Worse, I seem to have lost the nice texture/colour difference that came from adding rutile. I think it was too thin.
