1. T`he Evenheat people are still in business. Check them out on the

2. Many/several of the ceramic supply houses sell elements. Check them out
on the Internet.

3. Your kiln sitter is giving you trouble. And you want to change the
elements. No pun intended, but what is the connection?
If the kiln sitter is bust--and you do not tell us what trouble it
gives--then why would new elements help? It seems to me that this is like
getting a new mattress because the alarm clock is bust.

4. The age of the kiln--unless it has been exposed to the elements or
something--does not matter; the number of high firings (glaze firings) does.
It used to be they said elements give out after 100 glaze firings. How
often have you fired this poor baby?

Could you tell us what the kiln sitter is doing or not doing?
