Throwing Thursday - Coils

Sometimes when you're working with your kiln and you think everything is going all well and good then whamo! Once set of coils fails to heat when you're doing a bisque fire.  That's just what happened to me.  When that happens you have replace the coil.  Here's what that looks like.

Note - Please make sure you read the manufacturer's guidelines for your kiln.  This is not meant as an instructional process or directions on how to replace a burnt coil.  Please consult professional assistance when dealing with electricity.


First we have to remove the old coil.
