FAQ/Answer

If a small pyrometric cone sticks to the prongs in the Kiln Sitter, should the prongs be replaced?

Ordinarily you can remove the stuck cone from the Kiln Sitter cone supports (i.e. prongs) without having to replace the supports. Pull the supports from the porcelain tube. You will find that they slide right out of the slots. You may have to sand the supports with emery cloth to remove all traces of the cone.

In the future, coat the cone supports with kiln wash. Keep a small bottle of kiln wash near your kiln, mixed and ready to use. Use a nail polish bottle with brush applicator. Shake before each use since the kiln wash particles settle to the bottom.

Do not allow kiln wash to build up on the cone supports. You need only a thin coat. Apply more kiln wash before each firing or whenever the coating starts flaking off. Allow the kiln wash to dry before placing a cone on the cone supports.
