flames & firing
flame out the top peep towards the end of the firing
Peter asked some questions yesterday about burner failure systems...
Not a great picture in the dark but you can see how the wire connects from the baso safety valve to the thermocouple inserted into the burner. John and I had taken the burners to a welder and to retrofit our existing burners to the new safety system. Thermocouples are relatively inexpensive and we keep extras on hand. Safety is important, gas can be a very scary thing!
A quick peek in the kiln this morning and the shino is looking good, can't wait to unload in the morning.
