Vary Methods of Loading Weight
- If uneven firing occurs persistently, vary methods of loading weight to match the firing characteristics of the kiln.
- If elements typically fire hot at the top of the kiln put more weight in the top to absorb that heat, and vice versa.
- Ensure that weight is put at posts under the bottom shelf. The bottom shelf should be at least 1/2" to 1" above the floor of the kiln.
TIP: The longer posts can be laid down on their sides to get a perfect amount of space under the bottom shelf.
