Misunderstanding the Kiln Sitter has caused a lot of frustration.
One time a customer wanted me to fly to her home in North Carolina to pick up her kiln and take it back. The problem was only a Kiln Sitter out of adjustment. Another customer thought her heating elements were bad. Again, the problem was only a Kiln Sitter with a bent rod. In both cases, problems that seemed serious were easy to repair.
To understand the Kiln Sitter, it is essential that you are also familiar with pyrometric cones.
A little study of kilns goes a long way in prolonging the life of your kiln and improving firing results.
Wishing you the best in firing!
