drop ring fell off center

Postby Michael Stevens » Thu May 21, 2020 10:56 pm

Unsure why one side pulled off center. one side thick the other paper thin. I checked level of kiln and it's pretty close to level if anything a hair off. the outer ring was 3mm thick and inner ring 9mm. dropping about 6inches. .

heating schedule ramp 250 degrees to 1000, hold 30, ramp 250 to 1150 hold 30 ramp 250 to 1250, hold 30.

Looks like it was closer to the elements on one side than the other. Is that possible?

3 things I thought, I kiln not even heating, or schedule should go slower, lower and longer, or needs recalibrate. 2. my kiln isn't perfectly level. it's level but slightly off. 1mm maybe. 3. I didn't place the glass blank perfectly centered. but maybe you are right need to beore precise center in the kiln. but if off it's only 1 cm. I eyeballed it. but I could measure Next time. I really loved the color and bubbles and this organic spider pattern. hope I can duplicate. but I didn't write down what glass i used or exact amounts of things. I should make a precise log, but I hate paperwork :lol:
