The nitty gritty nuts and bolts of the kiln wiring

I spent the day today learning the ins and outs of the our old electric kilns (Duncan / paragon).
The elements were fine for the most part but good lord, the screws and nuts and washers were all rusty. The whole wiring panel needed attention. I met a really cool gal from Harford County Community College, who also teached continuing education ceramics. Her name is Gretchen. Needless to say I learned alot from her. The best part is that I can fire this weekend and keep my class on schedule. Yea!
