  1. Sorry if there is a similar thread already… I’m new to firing full stop! I just purchased a Duncan Teachers Plus and was running a high fire test today. I started at 10am this morning on Manual setting, High Fire and set it for 6.5 hours with no idea how long it should take. I only have two glazed items in there just for the sake of it and placed cones 9 and 10 on the bottom and top shelves so they are visible from the peep holes. After 11.5 hours and the cones are still standing. I placed a thermocouple in the top a little while ago and it was reading 1111 degrees. Half an hour later it was 1100 - I assume because the temp has dropped outside as well. I wonder if there is something or multiple things that I should have done differently? Maybe I should just use it to bisque if it won’t go higher? Thanks in advance…
  2. I have a complete set of 12 new elements for a Duncan model 1029 kiln, 240V single phase. These were purchased from Euclid's Elements as backups, but we retired that kiln before they were needed. Asking $450, USPS priority shipping included.
  3. I am rebuilding an old Duncan DK820-2 kiln for testing glazes. I need to replace the elements because of age and plan wind my own. I have ordered from Euclid 14 gauge Kenthal A1. Euclid says that the ohm reading should be 4.5 ohm for each element. The problem here is that this is close to the OLD manual that says it should be 4.6 but the new elements from Paragon (the current owner of Duncan) are 5. I did the math and according to the formulations it should be 5 for the specs on the boiler plate of the kiln. Paragon sells 220V elements at 4.6 ohm, 240V at 5 ohm, my kiln is 240V. Is Euclid covering for a under powered kiln by trying to push more amps through the kiln? My concern is if I go with Euclid's recommendation of 4.5 ohms will the elements burn out much quicker? Will I have a harder time reaching the top temps for the kiln if I go with the 5 ohm recommendation from Euclid? Who out there has had experience with this kiln and what has your experience been with the element replacement and performance?

  4. Hi, I am new to ceramic glazing. Are there any methods that can duplicate fire-based glazing on ceramics? I work at home, so i do not have access to kiln. I have read there are oven-based glazes and non-fire based glaze. How effective are they in terms of the glaze (will it be similar to fire glazed plate)? Thank You.
