    PA deer season will close this weekend. I still have not shut down as I have stuff yet to finish, and no, it is not fun!

    Are you having any luck? It has been real mild here in MS. Sunday, I got a nice 8pt chasing a doe, 180 lbs - big for here. Good Luck!

    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.

    What I tried to do today. hehe. Too many distractions.
    Do you have an amount you make before you wax and glaze? I been trying to workout a schedule.

    I usually fire the bisque, then while unloading clean and wax. This way whenever I decide to glaze fire part of the job is done. wax will stay there forever.

    Cool. This is very helpful, believe it or not. It's very efficient.
    Now, if I can loose the distractions. Thanks a heep.
