Hi everyone! We have done the first firing (element oxidation firing) today. It is empty firing with all kiln furniture in. So now the kiln is prepared for the first use. We started at eight o'clock this morning to maximise the use of our solar power.
Once it reached 1050C, the kiln automatically stopped. It seemed simple to use. But I only watched Mike setting a program!
Mike has collected data. So I will report how solar panels powered it later, as I know some people will be interested.
