Olsen 16 gas kiln advice please

Recommended Posts

Hi all.

I have a new (to me) Olsen 16 gas kiln kit, already built.  I would love to hear any advice folks have for firing this kiln, it did not come with any instruction or notes.  A successful firing schedule or other tips would be hugely appreciated.  It's set-up for Nat Gas but I may have to convert to LP as the distance to the gas line is great.  

Thanks in advance for any assistance!

if you have natural gas it will be way cheaper to run it.The cost of a trencher and plastic gas line vs the cost of propane still is worth it.

These kilns  (most updrafts) fire with a cold top hot bottom so stack accordingly. You can stack a shelve near the top flue exit to slow down the heat loss.
