  1. Thanks for all the info. In Mexico right now but will keep in mind all of your advise.
  2. Hello Great to hear from you. I am so frustrated with this kiln. Won't be firing until the weather warms up. I would love some advice from you and will email you. Thanks a lot
  3. No I won't be firing again for a while. Weather is too crappy. I am going to call mark Ward and see what he says.
  4. I don't really know. I bought the kiln off a friend of his who had inherited it from him when he died. His friend was not a potter and didn't know anything about the kiln. The kiln looked like it hadn't been fired much, looked almost in new condition even though it was manufactured in 2000.
  5. I'll try that, thanks. Have to wait for better weather
  6. I will have to try that another day but thanks for the idea. Raining and windy, so can't fire.
  7. Which regulator would I have to change. The one at the tank or the one just before the two burners. The one at the tank just changes the psi from the tank to the line. It is adjustable and set at around 5 psi.The other one further down the line changes the 5 psi to 12 inches of water column. Even if I changed the pressure at the tank wouldn't it still be the same coming out of the regulator that measures the 12 inches of water column.
  8. No I don't have a manual. Only instructions I had were the firing procedure manual which states the air discs on the burners should be nearly closed otherwise I will get burnback and damage the burners. Yes same regulator setup as previous owner had.
  9. Love you to come by and see my kiln. A better time would be spring or summer. We are getting windy rainy weather now. Too crappy for fishing. Are you serious your arms are broken. Sorry to hear that. How does some one break two arms.?
  10. Orifice is for a propane fired kiln.
  11. Yes but when I open the air flaps the flame is not steady, it's puffing etc and seems like it may blow itself out which I don't want when I am firing. The difference is so small from steady flame to puffing it's very difficult to adjust any kind of change.
  12. Yes that is what happens when in reduction . . I had a 4 inch flame out of the top peep and a wisp out of the bottom. The temp also rises at this time. The way the burners are now there is a nice blue flame with orange on the tips. That is with the gas fully open. If I open the air vents the burner is noisy and starts puffing. It seems like it has to be almost closed to have a nice steady flame but there is no sound. It is difficult to adjust the air flaps on the bottom of the burner as the difference between a noisy flame and a quiet flame is only a hair difference.
