Yesterday was the dreaded day to tear the kiln down and replace some bricks and put new elements in. Never a fun activity! Ed from Continental Clay in Minn MN gave me some great pointers on brick replacement. Thanks Ed!
Once done I was limping around like a ninety yr old but the initial cone 04 burn out firing completed as usual. PTL! I got up at midnight to check on it and it was complete. Hopefully I won't have to do this for another year!
