  1. Hulk - yep that looks like the pack. I need to dig out my kiln manual to check what temp its happy at. I programmed the kiln years ago when I got it and have not really looked at the instructions since. I can always contact the manufacturer i suppose. I've got a jen-ken kiln with optional bead door and Orton digital controller. I have entered a few different schedules and just press the corresponding number and off it goes.

  4. Ok, brand new here so forgive me if I have no idea what I am talking about lol! I work in glass and have similar issues.

I also wear them myself and have sold beads straight off my neck even when faults have been pointed out in detail. There is little space to sign a glass bead anyway so initials are my only option really, that and a certificate of authenticity with a picture. I am happy to do that for a bead costing £10-£50+ but not for £1 or free! i have given away unsigned work - as long
