I am converting an electric kiln to a propane kiln for school. i am fairly new at this whole topic and my teacher dosen't have much experience either. what i was wondering is do i need a pyrometer? and if so what is the best brand? Also how big of a propane tank did you use? any suggestions or advice would help and be greatly appreciated.
When Firing A Converted Propane Kiln Should I Use A Pyrometer?

There are some good articles about this floating around out there. Do a little digging.You will most likely need a hood maybe with a chimney depending on several issues.
I would use cones because they better indicate the heat work if they are not " freezing".

Yes you need one-its like a speedometer in your car- more info is useful.
I would get a digital one-use the search function as there are many posts on this subject.
