Low-fire Electric Kiln

Low-fire Electric Kiln

I’ve finally gotten a new low-fire electric kiln.  This kiln is designed to fire up to 1000°C, so it’s useful only for on-glaze enamels and bisque.  Total cost was 2900RMB, which is about $420USD.

The kiln uses 45cm X 50cm shelves, a common size here.

Elements are also snaked through the bottom of the kiln, on top of which are placed bricks.

Single K-type thermocouple placed in the middle of the kiln.

Locking wheels, really handy.

Control box.

Element connectors

Spring door.
