      Moderators needed!   12/08/2017

      Ceramic Arts Network is looking for two new forum moderators for the Clay and Glaze Chemistry and Equipment Use and Repair sections of the Ceramic Arts Network Community Forum. We are looking for somebody who is an active participant (i.e. somebody who participates on a daily basis, or near daily) on the forum. Moderators must be willing to monitor the forum on a daily basis to remove spam, make sure members are adhering to the Forum Terms of Use, and make sure posts are in the appropriate categories. In addition to moderating their primary sections, Moderators must work as a team with other moderators to monitor the areas of the forum that do not have dedicated moderators (Educational Approaches and Resources, Aesthetic Approaches and Philosophy, etc.). Moderators must have a solid understanding of the area of the forum they are going to moderate (i.e. the Clay and Glaze Chemistry moderator must be somebody who mixes, tests, and has a decent understanding of materials). Moderators must be diplomatic communicators, be receptive to others’ ideas, and be able to see things from multiple perspectives. This is a volunteer position that comes with an honorary annual ICAN Gold membership. If you are interested, please send an email outlining your experience and qualifications to jharnetty@ceramics.org.

Paragon Electric Kiln - voltage?

Recommended Posts

so i got this kiln for free and im not sure what the voltage should be - the tag on the outside say 220 but saw 110v elsewhere and then the outlet plug just throws me (dont mind the cobwebs)...i pretty much know nothing about kilns but am working on a little home studio so any advice/suggestions are welcome.

 

thanks!

The A-66B requires a 4-wire, 120/240 volt, 30 amp circuit with a 14-30R receptacle. The kiln uses 120 volts on Low and Medium and 240 volts on High. The neutral carries current, and so the fourth wire is necessary as a grounding wire.

 

Sincerely,

Follow Arnolds advice and also start reading up on electricity...then call an electrician to do the work. Paragon has an awesome website with all kinds of troubleshooting info...
