  1. Thanks guys so I'll do a 12 hour bisque firing and see if it makes it to 04, So I was not giving it enough time to reach the cones on the shorter firing For my bisque ans glaze firings I have been spending at least 2 hours on low 2 on medium and the rest on high and that seems to have worked, I shall go back to that and see how it goes Thanks for help
  2. Hey so I'm some what new to kilns and repairs, I got this kiln from an estate sale it needed a few parts but it was fully functional so far I've successfuly completed 2 full firing cycles bisque and glaze to 1080°c I'm happy with the results. I've been planning some cool peices for Christmas presents and I need to fire ASAP but the last fire I did Was a fix up firing for peices that needed to go a bit hotter and the kiln sitter didn't turn off lucky I was there to shut it off, I checked it and the cone 04 hadn't melted, the wares were fine and seemed to have done ok; I hadn't been using witness cones. So yesterday I test fired it for about 2 hours going up to setting 8 which should be s somewhere in the 1200 -1500 range I believe and the sitter still didn't turn off at cone 04 and the cone didn't melt. And the witness cones didn't seem to melt either, so I don't know what's wrong with it I cant see any visable problems except maybe some of the outer metal needs tightening (I'm planning on buying a pyrometer and a kiln plug for the peephole, I think converting to digital is a bit hard and expensive) Is there an obvious problem? Any ideas how to fix, should I pay for a firing service for my Christmas items? I live quite close to some Images on Google drive click link https://drive.google.com/file/d/12KorbzihiuWqlyPAxMyj5E5pRjNnirPx/view?usp=sharing Thanks for any help Rory
