Talk to Skutt on what needs to be done to get that kiln up to cone 10. New elements are $50 each- you shouldn't need anything fancier than that. If you still have the interbox plugs, you can hard wire them. Skutt will want to sell you a kit with new hinged boxes, but it's not really necessary if you now how to do it.

You can make a plaster mold of just about anything, so plaster is not required for the master form.

Always best to  wait until the elements are out to replace the bricks. It's just a whole lot easier that way. It is possible to pull an element out a bit in order to remove the brick, but old elements are very brittle, and you run the risk of breaking it.

 

Bottom rows always get broken out when the kiln is moved by someone who doesn't know what they're doing. I see it all the time. Hand trucks are deadly to kilns.
