Question Annealing Schedule for knobs needed, please?

My kiln is a digital JennKen Beadmaking kiln with the flip up door on the side. I've never used it for fusing, but perhaps I will in the future sometime.

Right now I'm going to be making cabinet knobs with Zoozii's press and Moretti, CIM and Double Helix glass. I would LOVE for someone to help me out with an anealing schedule for this fat little knobs. I know it will be different than annealing the regular beads due to its thickness of glass. Any info would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks!
Ilene

I've always used the same schedule as beads & focals. I've never had a problem. I make them first & they soak longer.

Ditto Vivian's routine. I make a half dozen knobs first, then make 25-30 beads over the next 3-4 hours, set the timer and go. The knobs have plenty of time to soak before being annealed.

When I work on something that is larger around than my thumb I just leave it an extra hour at my garaging temp before starting my normal annealing schedule witch already has a good 45 minutes delay programed.

My garaging temp is 960 while I am making things or 920 if I am playing with striking glass.

Can't speak to softglass but for Boro it is 30 minutes per 1/4" of thickness at annealing temperature.

I don't make anything huge out of soft or hard glass but I use the same methodology as above. I garage at my annealing point, make the big stuff first and then run my annealing program (which is set for 30 to 45 minutes).
