Well last week i drove to Dandridge Tenn.I took my burners to figure out why
it took so long to fire my kiln.It seems i had the wrong burners.

Marc Ward looked up a bunch of numbers, adds a bunch of numbers on his
calculater and comes up with a number for a new burner. Well i fired the next
day and my old Alpine is a new kiln. It fired much quiker /14 hrs/ and it was
a better firing.I can probably go faster /10-12/ hrs next time.

Anyway, Marc Ward knows burners.

Thank you Marc
