stubborn ^6 cones

I fire to cone 6 electric with cone 7 in the sitter. The sitter cone
bends to the perfect angle; the cone 6 standup cone stays upright. Cone
06 sitter and standup cones perform just fine.

A few months back a post informed of a change in Orton cones, but either
I didn't save the post or have lost it. Could someone repost or e-mail a
response to me privately? I need to figure out what's going on! Would
prefer it to be Orton's formula rather than my kiln needing adjustment...

Many thanks.

Call Orton and tell them the situation. I had a similiar problem once and
Orton told me that the old cones I was using were not in sink with their
current temperature equivalents. They sent me some replacement cones.
