  1. I am rebuilding an AIM Gas Kiln model 2327G (About the size of a Skutt KM1027). I'm looking for help in finding a operating manual or copy of original instructions. I called Aim and they don't have instructions for the older gas kilns anymore. I'm interested in if there were baffles originally at the bottom of the kiln to redirect the flame. It has 3 Gaco 75,000 BTU burners and is set up for Natural Gas. It's about 20 feet from my Gas meter on a 3/4" line. Any input or help would be appreciated. I intend to fire at Cone 10 reduction.
  2. Advice On Old Kiln

    Hello, I've just been given an old kiln and I'm not sure what it needs or even if it's worth spending money on (of which I don't have much) It is a Tetlow (an Australian brand) Model TP6, 15amp, 3 kw, 50HZ Phase 1. It has a thermocouple, does this go in the hole on the front or top? The box on the outside of the kiln has a dial that goes from 0-100, with the words Simmerstat, Sunvic, made in the UK. I've been told that the elements have been replaced. It's a small kiln, 380mm x 380mm x 470mm. I've returned to ceramics after a break of about 20 years. Both in the past and more recently I haven't fired my own work, I've been a member of a club where the group members' works were fired for them, so my knowledge is very limited. I'm wondering if I can add a Digital Temperature Controller, I've found one on eBay from a seller in Canada that's not too expensive. Any info anyone can give me will be gratefully received
  3. I am a newbie potter and I have purchased a 20 year old, smallest Stanton T25 electric Kiln. It is working, it has a digital controller in a black box, probably not the original, and a large white box underneath that ? No idea what that is but all the wiring goes through it. We are trying to use it today with a test firing. The controller has simple settings; a temperature readout, a set switch to set the temp you want it to reach, a soak switch which holds the temp, and a switch which sets the rate the temperature climbs ie the power. It does not appear to have a time switch, so it is a sort of manual kiln, no spy holes, and a bung in the lid presumably to let any steam escape at low temperature. Top loader, with a lock mechanism which will not allow the lid to be opened when switched on. We have no idea how to control the cooling speed and have just adjusted the temperature setting every hour today. No idea what we will find when we open it tomorrow! We have been unable to obtain an instruction book or find one online. If someone has this kiln and can give me simple instructions that would be great, or a copy of an old instruction book. Thank you for all the great questions and answers, this site has been invaluable for me.
  4. Can anyone help with how to use a kiln I have acquired. It is an electric manual as far as I can tell Potterycrafts p5151 240v, 3kw On the kiln is a dial 1-100 - with no guide as to what it does. Separate but wired into kiln (can be fixed to a wall) is a dial to change between 1-1400 (temp) and also a switch which can be set to limit or soak. I can't find much help online for this so though someone might have an idea on which each dial does! Thanks!
  5. I am looking for owner information on maintenance of my Bailey slab roller from the 1980's. It has a dual roller with a single crank which is supposed to raise and lower the roller equally on both sides. It has never done this correctly which I have addressed by using shims. I need to get this working properly. I got some setup information from Bailey Pottery, but it did not have the detail for the adjustments, nor the maintenance for the chain or adjusting the tolerance (gap) of the lock nut. Based on what I heard, Bailey has gone to Nylock nuts, so I want to do this correctly. I also wonder about lubricating the moving parts - or is this necessary? Any help would be appreciated as I am getting into a project where I really want to use this equipment (after all these years The video clips on the Bailey site require Quicktime which is not compatible with my operating system, so I have never been able to view them. Thank you for any assistance....
