Tooting my horn.  Just picked up my like new kiln yesterday.  Skutt1018 with digital controller.  The seller said it had been bisque fired seven times.  Came with set of shelves, didn't even have kiln wash on them. The kiln doesn't have a single chipped brick.  I am rocking.  Paid $1000 for the whole package so I feel like I got a pretty good deal.

Excellent! I just recently acquired my first kiln and it's a Skutt too, only mine is a Model 181 and it cost me $85 + gas to pick it up! :lol: Yes, it needs all of the elements replaced but to be fair, it does have a sitter! I am very lucky in that my hubby is a German Engineer, so he is going to refurbish and build an electronic controller for me. Woot!

I will join the club - I got a skutt KM1027 for $500 bucks.  I don't have it hooked up yet, (I just called the electrician today)  and I haven't the slightest idea how to fire yet. (i have been using an old paragon with a high, medium, low, switch with the cone shut off button.

"To me the greatest thing is to live beauty in our daily life and to crowd every moment with things of beauty.  It is then, and then only that  the art of the people as a whole is endowed with it's richest significance.  For it's products are those made by great a many craftsmen for the mass of the people, and the moment this art declines the life of the nation  is removed far away from beauty.  So long as beauty abides in only in a few articles created by a few geniuses, the kingdom of beauty is nowhere near realization."                                                                                 - Bernard Leach
