Kiln arrived yesterday, and is now in the shop. I am in the process of reassembling, and have an electrician coming to do whatever needs done with the wiring into service. I am also getting ready to set the vent into the chimney at back corner.

Assembled, now I am waiting on electrician.
When the old J236 broke down, it was in the middle of a firing. The cones had turned white, and the pots were all glaze fired, but lacked depth and appropriate hardness. I believe the kiln reached about 2150F. Therefore, I have enough of a load to fire in the new kiln. The old kiln would hold 2 patens(plates) at a layer with overlap of rims at different heights. The new kiln will handle 3 to a layer, and will handle quite a load of chalices at the top levels. The first firing will not be packed, but will get me used to what is going on.
great news! hee hee exciting....x
