float and devit

I'm doing an experiment with float (not too familiar with it). I laid a bunch of small pieces and frit piled up on a 1/4" base, with some fine colored frit and dammed it. I originally programmed for 1550 with a 10 minute hold, but it wasn't flattened out, so I added time and temp and ended up at 158...
