In Topic: Cone Breaking During Firing?

is the diameter of the sensing rod too thin from being used for many firings?  if it is a used kiln, you have no idea how many times that rod has been in there.  replacing the rod won't hurt.

one more thing.  recently there was a thread about notifying your insurance company about the presence of a kiln on your property..check that out, too.

In Topic: Electric Kilns Now Described In Cubic Feet, Why?

Yesterday, 09:47 AM

ok, but again, why do we care?  if a sculptor wants a kiln to be tall enough for his work how does cubic measurement help?  this reminds me of the silly term realtors use to describe a lot as 1/17 of an acre.  well, is it a 2 foot wide lot that runs several hundred feet or a square or a triangle?


mark, first word in the title is electric because i read it over and realized i had not specified it so i added electric.   i know fuel burning kilns have always referred to cubic feet. i live in apple growing country and keep picturing apple crates stacked up.  try picturing them inside a catenary arch kiln.  too much math for me.
