I start with 11 oz of water per pound of glaze to start.

In Topic: Electricity cost of firing small ceramics pieces in a kiln?

24 June 2013 - 10:39 AM

I mainly use my little Skutt 181 for everything I fire. I know how long it takes to fire for bisque and for glazes. To give myself a good fudge factor I just use the max wattage for the total length of firing, which I believe on that kiln is 4800 watts. And multiply that by what a KWH costs me. You can easily figure the cost of each piece if they are comparable in size.

I also like the color. There may not really be any reason for the color being off to you. Different kilns different environments.

By-pass the rheostat in the foot pedal. just wire it direct. If it works it's the rheostat. if not it's something in the motor or controller.

Wasn't there someone that's a member here was using a laser printer to make decals?
