Dimanche - tranquille mais chaud!
Day 4 of the 6 day shift cycle. Shift midday till 8:00 pm
Press - Mulder
Tiles made: Ventilation 033 Xahara 4600
Dry Tiles unstacked: Ventilation 033 Rouge
It's nice to take it easy on Sundays, and today that's what we did. The ventilation tiles are easy to make, so the press was no problem, and they are fairly light to stack too.
Then at aboout 3:00 pm, they had a problem at the kiln so the chain of balancelles got filled up. We stopped the press at about 3:20 and took an early break. A break of 45 minutes! Unheard of! Then on restart they continued to have problems clearing the chain and we finally stopped at 7:30. So 4600 wasn't a bad total considering.
on the other hand it was hot. Hot! and it's only April. Last year on hot days I ran with sweat. Today I just got hot. Coming out of winter my body has to re-learn how to sweat.
