Kiln Hiccup

Bisque firing didn’t reach temp. Turns out I needed new elements, thermocouples, and relays…all those cone 6 firings finally caught up with me. Cost me a few weeks and a few bucks but I should be good as new by day's end, fingers crossed. Filing this one in the "Overhead of Life" folder.
