Thanks for that info on the elements.
I wish they graded those stainless bands as well.

In Topic: Skutt 1227 Band Snaps Loose During Recent Bisque-Gerrrr

Yesterday, 10:00 PM

The update on the update is after checking my kiln log this kiln was new about 2001-I bought it in 2004 and have fired it 65 times to cone 08.It was fired less than 12 times before My use -and all to cone 06-total firings less than 75 all t low temps.
The elements after turning them all on full seem to glow at different rates-hotest on the bottom and top. Each sections(3 total section on this manual 1227)
Each section has two seperate elements-it appears one may be close to dead as its not very hot .
Maybe Niel can suggest my next move on this color discrepancy?? I have a feeling I'm going to be digging further into this skutt after x-mas.

Chris this statement is beautiful-so true- so true.

The more you care about something the more likely it is to go wrong.)

General Color and chemical looks to be still operating so you can use the ones in the recipe-Order from them direct.

Update
I built a paltform to get behind the kiln (tight space)and crawled into the hole. I punched a dent in tighting bands and used a hardened drill bit to drill the hole. Turns out I had drilled and screwed 95% of all bands back in the 90's but missed the center band which all spot wields gave up last week. After screwing it together I lubed the tightners and tightened them up.Kiln is ready again for last mintute bisques.
I hope anyone who is asking about what brand of kiln to buy reads this post-I own 3 skutts ( I gave one away)and dream they are all L&Ls
