How do I program a slump or tack or full fuse glass program into my 3-Key Bartlett Control or One-Touch Control?

This program is fine for slumping, tack fusing, or full fusing.  Just substitute different top temperatures when programming. The step in the programming marked with a "*" at the end of it is the one to change.

For slumping, use 1220 (Fahrenheit)

For tack fusing use, 1350

For full fusing use, 1480

You may have to adjust these temps a little higher or lower depending
on your tests.

Additionally the 10 minute hold time at the highest temp may need to
be adjusted longer or shorter as well. This hold time is the number
entered in the next step after the step with the "*" on it.

To enter this program do the following:

Set the toggle switch for the kiln to ON, look for it to say IDLE on
the display.

Press ENTER if it does not say IDLE after 5 seconds. Look for "IDLE"
to appear along with the temp reading.
