During this event we discovered a small leak in the roof (water on the floor). Thankfully my husband found the hole and we were able to plug it up until things dry out for a better fix.
We still have a lot of snow around here....
This is the secondary regulator. It's job is to convert the high pressure propane fuel to a lower pressure for the kiln to use. The second stage regulator prevents a gas seal break or leak. The regulator needs to be outside the building so it can discharge gas should there be a problem...I think I get that~
All shiny and new. Still on target for my first firing: March 12th. I have amassed a load of bisque ware and hope it's enough. Glazing and loading the weekend of the 5th. Before then I'll practice lighting it...any other advice/suggestions out there?!
The prospect of filling this "massive" (to me anyway) kiln with so much work and firing it for the first time has me feeling queasy. Fear of failure- wanting to do it "perfect".
My insecurity screams - "you spent all that $$ and it will probably suck"... "you don't really have the time for this..." It reminds me of that commercial with the lady buying salmon for a dinner party- have you seen it?! Anyway the voice in her head basically laughs at her...it all turns out great, however- I think it's an oven commercial??
OK, I am rambling. Long story short: the kiln is hooked up, I will fire it, I will be scared, and I will pray...AND I will try not to take all my anxiety out on my husband (gotta really work on that one).
