Today was another day of curing.
I increased the temp. to 150 degrees Celcius and kept it there all day.
I started to get condensation on the underside of the plastic around 3 hrs into it.Now 3 hrs after that i have no more condensation on the plastic.But im not sure if that means i'm in the clear just yet.

Tomorrow i will probably step it up to 175` Celcius.

Cheers John.

How are you going to stop the weight on the arch from pushing it out sideways?

It depends where you read the temp from, but the bottom of the oven will be way cooler than the top. I usually take it up to 250 C over 24 hrs then progress to larger fires.

Hey David,
Im still waiting for my infrared gun to arrive so ive been taking measurements using only the dial thermometer sitting in the oven.Im guessing the ambient internal heat is nowhere near the temps of the inner brick surfaces so im going easy.Do you think i should jump to 200 instead?

You can do the process too fast and risk damage, but you can never take it too slow.
However, as you've been heating it all day and the plastic no longer shows condensation, if it were mine I'd be taking it up to 250 and trying the plastic test again.

Sounds like what I'd be trying. I fired my kiln last night and a storm just missed us. It was not covered and we were out for dinner. Keeps you nervous.
