My kilns are in the garage. We get overnight temps in the teens and even on several nights a season will get below zero but the garage retains a little warmth. I have started up the kilns when they read in the twenties and all has been well. They tend to cool to room temp at near the same rate too....

I wrote Skutt with that same question a few weeks ago. I was informed that the only concern is the controller and that I was advised not to run the kiln below 32 degrees.

Photoshopping

Hey Chip....Should we just send you the pics...without messing around in photoshop? (like borders or something...?) I figured you'd want to design that sort of thing yourself, no?

Thanks,

If we want to make a heap for the scholarship fund - as in selling a bunch of these "one of a kind" calendars, then everyone should think about doing something wild and whacky with their photo.

. . . and to be fair to Bullseye, or any other manufacturer, they put a product out there in good faith. Then hundreds of us do hundreds of different things to that product. It's hardly surprising that some of those things produca a less than desirable effect. Brock Don't misunderstand, Brock, even...

Anyone think there's a chance that the players could bounce this particular ball together? BB That's a tough one.

If I'm reading you right, we are looking at $1050 for 125, or about $8.40 in cost. So if we sold them for $15, then @$7 could go to the scholarship fund!! COOLIO! Hi Chip...
