In Topic: Firing Error And Bloating

The elements may be fine as well as the voltage it could be the pyrometer thermocouple probe going out-it tells the computer what the temp is and has a limited life. I have no idea what the life is in your setup but Neil may if you discribe your setup. May be a relay issue?

The blaoting sounds like the brown clay body-just put a new small piece in next fire as your bloated piece is toast it sounds.

In Topic: Attaching Wooden/antler Handles

My suggestion is exactly what Tyler said except I would not have that rectangle on the top-rather just your round clay as a lug and drill the antler with a round drill bit for the epxoy mount-that would save cutting a rectangle in the antler. Much easier to drill a shallow hole.

If you use JB wield  epoxy the pins may not be needed.
