New pig tail in, jumper, and holders replaced. Elements were within specs for firing. One set of fuses replaced, and everything put away. Now firing in 99F. heat.

    It's only humid in Tucson for maybe 15 minutes after it rains. Then the ground soaks it up and it's back to a dry heat.

    Is this like a variation of the adage "A watched pot never boils"? Instead, "An unwatched kiln always over-fires."...

    Settings were line up for shut off in the morning. Nothing on high. under est. by 30 minutes is my best guess. Nothing ruined.
