I have a Skutt kiln with a Kiln Sitter and a pyrometer. I've kept
time/temperature notes of a firing, trying to slow the quartz inversion
point change rate and I would like to chart the firing as a line chart. It
seems to me Excel is the answer, but with my limited knowledge of excel, I
can't seem to figure it out. I get close but no cigar. Anyone out there
have a template they would like to share?
I'm experimenting to see how to control temperature change rates (and maybe
even how to soak at a temperature point. I know a computer on the kiln
would be perfect, but as with all starting potters, I need to work with what

I am attaching an excel spreadsheet with a sample
chart. I have just entered some values as a sample. In
the Sheet1 tab, you can enter the temp and the hour (I
have it for 15 hours but you can change that). Then
click on the tab below which says Chart1, you will
have your line chart plotted. If you have any
questions don't hesitate to ask.

Several people have contacted me regarding the excel spreadsheet. It is nothing fancy but if you still need a copy, I can email you a copy. Just email me seperately.
However it is very simple to do. I found these instructions online for how to do it in Microsoft Works. It is exactly how I did it in Excel. The instructions are very clear and you shouldn't have a problem.
