update: kiln maintenance sessions in the clayart room

updated fri 9 mar 07


Arnold Howard on thu 8 mar 07

William Schran and I are giving kiln maintenance
presentations in the Clayart room. Everyone is welcome to
attend. Please note that William's presentation is on Friday
instead of Thursday.

March 15, Thursday, 1:00 PM - 2:00 PM
Hands-On Basic Electric Kiln Maintenance: Arnold Howard

I will bring an ohmmeter and a small kiln collar so that you
will have the opportunity to test an element. Feel free to
bring questions.

March 16, Friday, 1:30 PM - 2:30 PM
Element Connectors: William Schran

William will show you the element connectors used by the
major kiln manufacturers. He will demonstrate how to tighten
them properly since one of the main causes of element
failure is a loose connector.

We look forward to seeing you at NCECA.
