Tim Elias is on a distinguished road
Going from a Stadelman type furnace for plus 13 years to the wire melter is proving to be huge learning curve as we also now use Spectrum pellets (instead of Spruce Pine). All your info is amazingly helpful and will investigate some different avenues as in:- 3 elements on instead of 2
-french wire? where to get them seems a bit of a concern...
-love the part about insulating more
-getting used to working with a lower temp. glass than previous (2170+) seems doable
-the elements are closed off pot but gassing off damages anyway???
.... many considerations and thank you for info. Will be back once furnace opens (tomorrow) and brain annealed after technical overload...
