  1. Hi, I have owned a second hand Duncan EA 1020 studio plus kiln for around 12 years and have mostly been firing at the lower temps from cones 020 to 04. Cone 04 usually took around 6 hours. This kiln is an Automatic/Manual kin. 30amp. The Kiln is rated to fire to cone 8. It has a 20 hour timer. Element ohms have been tested and are slightly better than required Recently I wished to fire to cone 6. This has become a sticking point. I did a firing mid last year for cone 6, set the timer for 15 hours. The Kiln reached cone 4 almost 5. The next cone 6 firing was 20hours and

  3. Hello all, Looking for firing schedules. I have a small manual electric kiln with a kiln sitter and wondering if anyone has a simple, clear firing schedule they follow and could share?

Wall thickness: thrown or hand built up to 3/8". Structural starting at 1/2" up. Sculptural with varying thickness/ parts. 3. High iron/ carbon bodies vs. white body. 4. Single fire vs. bisq. For the bulk of most firings; functional or non-functional and single fire vs. bisq fire comprise most firings. The additional variable is how thick are these pieces? Several universities across the world have done studies
