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.


  1. -groan- Replacing elements is such a chore, especially when they burn out in the lower half and you're trying not to lean on the firebrick insulation as you bend yourself down in there. :(

  2. I have a new element on the way. Hope it doesn't give me too much trouble putting it back in the kiln.
