  1. I know I would need to at least bisque before using, but do they need vitrified too before using? I am using under a bisque pot being glaze fired to cone 6. I have heard all sorts of horror stories about how fluid Amaco's Adventurine is, so just trying to play it safe until I learn how much it runs. (And of course I got ahold of about 15 other new glazes and would rather waste a little clay making cookies as I play with my new colors).
  2. Old 3.2 cu ft American Beauty manual kiln. Wares are not huge, so 3 layers loaded. Kiln has only 2 peeps. Kiln room is a concrete room (old fruit cellar), with glass block window with vent fan. We run fan and close door since kiln isn't vented. Firing to cone 6. Standard 182 w/grog stoneware clay. Mayco and amaco glazes (layered glaze combos, but was careful to leave room for runs, which are desired). Some have flux on rim. I see so many differing opinions on peeps open vs closed. Which would you choose? I am thinking top peep only open whole firing. I really want my first glaze fir
  3. neilestrick - I see you're a distributor for L&L, the e23t? Is on my list as a finalist for my goal in a couple years... How does it compare with other 7 cu ft kilns? I am short, so I think a 7 cu is my limit or else I'll have issues loading bottom. The skutt 1027 is another on my finalist list... Haven't made a final decision yet
  4. Yes, I think we have it adjusted now. Per Sue's instrux, we had 2 additional adjustments we had to tweak. Mark C - no timer on my k type sitter. Just 4 power switches. Guessing circa early 70's. Upon inspection, cone did start to bend, but only about 10%. Just enough to shut off because we were off on trigger plate height. I do understand the complete mechanics of how the sitter works. (Not offended at too many details btw). And using 020 for tests because they are my lowest temp small cones, fastest test fire method. Yes I have the calibration plate. Neilestrick - yes, very consis
  5. ok, downloaded Sue's e-book, and we were literally within a mm of what she shows is proper... so its test firing again. Oy, I hope its right this time! And here I thought I'd never use up that box of 020 in my lifetime
  6. I have been reading many other threads on this forum, and you guys/gals are great, I've learned a LOT. So, Covid lost me my firing source. They literally closed down local branch, and moved to headquarters 2.5 hours away. No way I'm gonna try and transport 50+ greenware that far! So the hunt for a used kiln finally found me an old American Beauty AB-18 that looked quite used, but fired up great and seems to have good integrity to brick. Only had to get a new sensor tube for it! This is my temporary stopgap until I can save up for a new kiln (guessing its about 3 years away). Got ele
