Kiln repaired, getting back at it now.

My replacement element came in the mail yesterday. I couldn't wait to install it and see if that fixed it. Well repairs went smoothly and it fired up just as it should. So now im back at it. Firing some named brick for friends as well as some new test pavers.

A thank you to New Mexico Clay for their help with locating for me a replacement element for my old kiln.

Down for repair.

My last firing stalled out at 1000'F due to the lower half shutting down. Turns out one of the four bottom heating elements burnt out creating an open circut. Ive priced replacement elements for the kiln at around $30, so I should be able to have it up again soon. Its an old used kiln that has served me well. I cant be sore about it at all.
