Hi Neil, maybe I should join Instagram or another social media to force myself to take pictures...

 

Yes, it's a great way to force you to do it, plus it's great free advertising, too. I've got 600 followers in IG and I don't know most of them. I like it much better than Facebook because there's no drama or games or all that other stuff that makes Facebook so annoying.

I try to to take a picture every day of what I'm working on so I can post it to Instagram. I keep them all on file to use on my web site and Facebook, too.

My bad. Thought you meant a peep hole, not an actual window. Very cool!

The thing is I am testing my vent with the kiln off at 80 degrees and no smoke goes in.

 

Find a small crack and put a smoldering match right there. You have to do it with all the peep hole plugs in or it will spoil the draft. If it's not drawing in, the I would check that the holes in the bottom of the kiln are not blocked, then adjust the slider on the vent box on the bottom of the kiln. It shouldn't need to be closed more that about 60% on a kiln that small. Also check outside to make sure the vent is exhausting properly. If it's smelly while firing, put one 1/4" hole in the lid and try it again. You shouldn't need more that 2 holes in a kiln that size.
