End of the Line

I am sad to report the demise of my last functioning thermocouple.I knew perfectly well that they are extremely delicate instruments,and that it is asking for trouble to move them from kiln to kiln.The last trip to the salt kiln proved one too many:the wires got fried,and the rhodium/platinum elements snapped.I spent a futile hour or so trying to extricate and rethread things,then gave up.I fired Monday's bisc by the seat of my pants and a cone,and everything came out fine.There's a new thermocouple waiting for me in Yaffo,but whether it will get along with my pyrometer remains to be seen.Why does it take me so long to learn things I already know? Posted by Picasa
