Major Components

History

On 1/28/2013 this was tested to at least power up and create heat.
3/3/2014. Inspect and test all mechanical and electrical components.
Remove upper switch, disassemble, clean contacts, reassemble and reinstall.
All components appear to works as intended.

Heating Profile

On 3/3/2014 I ran the kiln using a PID temperature controller set to 2200f.
Room temp to 500f. 7 min.
Room temp to 1000f. 17 min.
Room temp to 1500f. 40 min.
Room temp to 2000f. 95 min.
