Default Newbie Kiln Programming Help Please

I purchased a used Paragon Sentry X-press 4.0 and I am trying to figure out a program sequence for annealing flowers from the Carlo Dona bellflower press. If anyone has a kiln like mine I would appreciate if you could help me get the right schedule. Thanks!

Call Paragon ..... I'm sure they'd help.

This is for a Bartlett controller, but maybe it will give you a way to figure it out on your own.

I'm unclear whether you need help with programming the kiln or an annealing schedule. The manual is available at Look at pages 7 and 8. Sorry can't copy and paste. You can use your regular annealing schedule, but you won't need to hold these very long at your garaging temperature. A half hour should be fine, then skip to your ramp down schedule and anneal as usual.

Hope this helps.
