New 04 Firing Sched

Trying out a new computer program for my Skutt.

After looking at the book, Mastering Cone 6 Glazes, I decided to take their recommended bisque firing sched.

Since most of the pieces in this firing are porcelain and a couple of them are maybe a bit damp, I'm going to see how it works.

04 Bisque

80 - 212F/0 (slow)
180 - 1650F/0 (fast)
100 - 1760F/0 (slow)
80 - 1944F/20 (soak)

Alarm 1000

Delay 9 hours

Fingers crossed!

when I did my bisque in my skutt I noticed a couple of times it went over 212 to 220 and then back down so I changed that temp to 200, good luck

Thanks, Linda,

I'll be interested in seeing if there's a difference from my old program.

It's like playing the Lotto anyway. heh

Hey I play the lotto every day in my work, sometimes I loose sometimes I win. I played the CA lotto the first time it opened and won 54 dollars and nary a cent after that, didn't play much after that. Now I try to use calculated guesses.
