Fusing Tips Comment by Jennifer Bonesteel on Wednesday, September 3, 2014
@Lori J. I can't see any problem with that schedule off the top of my head but, because every kiln is unique, adjustments must sometimes be made. It may be that the glass is cooling too quickly - you could reduce the ramp temperature for slow down or increase the annealing time - it's a pretty thick casting and it can never hurt. The other thing that can cause cracking is incompatible glass. You can use a Stress Tester (item 103399) to determine if stress is the cause.

Fusing Tips Comment by Lori J. on Monday, August 25, 2014
I have the butter dish mold. Yesterday I did the Base and it cracked. I put in 18 oz. of coe96 glass then fired it using the schedule that was on the web site. I've done this a few times and ended up cracking the one mold. I've looked at it at full fuse and looks good, and I've looked at it once it cooled down and has shut down and good then but crack once its completely cool. Fired again and didn't look until completely cooled down still cracked. I don't know what else to do here. Have a few people wanting one.
