  1. Went back with Multimeter and discovered the fuses were not allowing current past. Luckily I had some on hand and have replaced them seems to be firing great so far. Thanks again for y'alls help.
  2. Ok Thank you both very much for taking the time to respond y’all have given me some things to check out tomorrow I recently replaced the small relays but I’ll check the large ones tomorrow thank you
  3. Hey everyone I hoping for some help troubleshooting an issue with my LNL da Vinci 3227 kiln it Is an older model kiln. I recently replaced elements created all new connections with power cords kiln fired great for both bisque and cone 5 firing. This week I went to fire and the top and bottom sections only went to 200° the middle section stayed around 100 I thought it could be thermal couples they looked spent so I replace them with all new connections. Turned on again today and same thing after an hour it’s not had a error code but is not following program. Just stalls around 200. I press
  4. Yeah they are like 15 dollars each Starts to get kind of steep on top of a new set of elements. I already had some bricks just sitting around so thinking about my options before I take it apart. You are probably right might have to just make more pots.
  5. Have a question about repairing brick on my older lnl DaVinci kiln. I have moved this kiln in hast a couple times now. I have broken a few brick cemented back together now my elements need changed was gonna go ahead and replace bricks. My question is I have some 3 inch brick and the bricks that need replaced have element holders still intact does any have experience cutting own channels for element holders. Tools or tips? Also lnl I am pretty sure uses a denser brick then standard k23 would it hold up? Thank you, JPeel
  6. Recently read an article in CM about an artist she made these over the top serving pieces like the individual pea server and pickle servers that she made in to these 50's inspired performance installations. I am looking for her name as I wanted to share her work with my students but can not seem to find it any where. Thanks for the help
  7. Thank you will try it tomorrow.
  8. I am firing some work that is glazed cone 6 on the inside with just colored slips and an oxide wash on the outside i need to fire to cone six and was hoping to put the decal on the colored slips during this firing if i do a thin glaze wash or 3124 wash could i put the decal on top so it has some flux to adhere it or could i put the decal on and thin wash over it. The image is not detailed but i dont want it to rub off or fire out. Thank you Jp

  10. I have a five gallon bucket of zinc oxide that has clumped up to various size hard lumps that I need to get back down to size. I assume this is from being stored for a long time and moisture has gotten to it. I dont own a ball mill but have seen various diy models or if I fire in bisqe bowl would that break it down. Thank you Jp
  11. I am a high school ceramics teacher just started at my current school which happends to have a small cantanary arch kiln that has never been fired was built about 10 years ago. I am about to get it hooked up and checked out and really considering 6 reduction. I fire my on work to 6 and my thought is that most of thoes glazes would melt and work in reduction. I also think economically its better and I really dont want to be sitting at school waiting for 10 to drop while my family eats dinner. My questions are would firing schedual be the same I do a body reduction around 08 and would keep i
