John, Cindy...apples and oranges. Thanks for the info. Although I've used
jr. cones for 30 years almost exclusively (working in miniature for a lot
of that time), I have still never used a kiln sitter. I've never even seen a
kiln sitter in action. I purchased an Aim 8"x8" x8" kiln with a sitter,
but since it's used primarily for raku, I have set up a by-pass for the
sitter and use the cones on a cone pat. (Yes, Cindy, some potters do that.
Of course, when I give the used cone pats away to kids at shows, even
potters occasionally wonder what they are because of the size. ) So I
have learned something new now which I will put to use when and if I ever
use a kiln sitter. Thanks and cheers, CNC
