We had a slight problem with installing the element. We didn’t have a heavy duty crimper to crimp the wire to the element. So, today we went to the “Big City” and bought one — plus a few other things, saw a movie and went out to eat.
We also needed to buy a nice sturdy table from Cosco for my upcoming Craft Fair, so we made the trip worthwhile.
When we got home, we finished the job, the crimper worked perfectly and now the kiln is heating up. The manufacturers recommend firing it with nothing else in it for the first time.
Tomorrow, I should be firing up more glass.
