Slumping Twice

I’m doing more slumping in the little flatbed… I think it worked better because this kiln is top fired, so the heat would be more even on the surface of the glass than it was in the other, side-fired kiln.

Program: Started in the mini flatbed at15:15 on 20131120

  1. Delay 14:00 goes to 06:15
  2. 100* to 300* hold 01:00 (04:00)
  3. 250* to 550* hold 9999 (01:00) expected 11:15
  4. 166* to 650* hold 01:00
  5. AFAP to 482* hold 01:00
  6. 55* to 371* hold 00:00
  7. 999 to 50* hold 00:00
  8. End

At 12:16 came in and advanced program It reached 650 at 12:43. I advanced to the hold at 12:44

Checking brought the temperature to 596, it was back up to 650 at 12:53. I had more success at 650* than on the earlier test, It was more controlled. I think I need to make the moulds deeper, though.
