Thanks very much perkolator. I would rather stay with the manual kiln sitter control box. No response from Evenheat yet so I guess I'm on my own. I haven't taken the top section apart so I don't know what I'm up against. I have a MIG welder but have only used it with flux core wire so far. I have the gas attachment to weld stainless steel but don't have the shielding gas at this point. Not that I can't, I just haven't needed it up until now.

Call Evenheat again. It'll be easier to get parts from than rather than retrofitting it with other brands. That said, you can buy a new sitter anywhere. But try to get elements from Evenheat.

Okay thanks Neil. I've sent them a couple e-mails but haven't called them yet. I'll try that next. The dimensions of this kiln are the same as one of the current models on their website so hopefully parts will be easy to get.
