    Backup Thermocouple Placement

    I am with Ed , I think you would want one thermocouple in a kiln this size since fluctuation will be slight if any and the ability to regulate temp is non existent . Before I retired I was in the pottery industry and our kilns were 1800 cubic ft and we had 3 to 4 thermocouples per kiln.

    Something new for me

    On this hunter I have wrapped the tang and spacer in cling free wrap so I can remove the handle block after glue up. This will give me a tight fit for the pin hole.
