[From someone who owns a Duncan kiln] Are Kiln Sitter firing gauges of different dimensions for different kilns, or are they of a standard shape for all Duncans?
You can buy a Kiln Sitter firing gauge from ceramic suppliers. It is a small steel disk with a hole and two slots. The Duncan Kiln Sitter firing gauge is the same size as the one for the Dawson Kiln Sitter and the Orton Auto-Cone. New kilns come with the firing gauge. People sometimes throw the gauge away because they assume that it is used only during shipping. The gauge should be saved and kept with the kiln manual.
