Thank you. I think I may have an idea. I was researching and found out that skutt makes an oval kiln that can run on single phase but can only reach cone 1. My guess, and I'm not really sure cause I can't seem to wrap my head around all of the electrical, is that the reason my kiln, amaco ex-1850, can't be converted is that firing it to cone 10 wouldn't be advisable and safe as well as not being able to get UL to list it. It seems that Skutt figured it could get a UL listing if the top end was cone 1. That said amaco has a wire diagram on their website that shows the 1850 in single phase. Hmmm...? What is this about? Aren't amaco kilns and skutt kilns the same? I guess my question now is if I can get a new terminal block, two ins instead of three, and make sure the wiring is the correct gauge, get new 240 elements and never fire above cone 1 will it work? Any thoughts?
I think I have all of the breaker stuff worked out as I got new service, 225amp, to my house. I dug a trench and ran lines to my studio so that the studio would be able to have a 100amp breaker dedicated to the kiln as the manufacturer recommends. I had an electrician hook it all up and guide me as to the gauge of wire.
Thanks for all of the amazingly quick input from the people that have replyed to my post. I am new to this forum and I am impressed by what I have seen. I look forward to interacting often in the future.
