New 23x22 is a perfect size: easy to load but still a decent capacity and can handle 20" pots which is pretty good for most mere mortals

5.83 cu ft

What Diesel says is IMPORTANT !!!

Without a CSA inspection sticker you put yourself in peril in Canada.

All electronic devices in Canada NEED to be inspected.

What happens is that if there is a fire, your insurance company can deny any claim since it could have been started by your non-approved device !

 

Order a wheel from Tucker's or one of the other Canadian retailers. They get all wheels approved and deal with import hassles as well. Looks more expensive at first, but once you get your feild inspection and pay tariffs, you will find they are the same price or cheaper and do not endanger your home insurance!

The suppliers sell these 6 to10 thingies this way to keep from having to stock SO many clay bodies for all the various firing temperatures.

Another reason clay makers have these compromise 6-10 bodies is for studios that have cone 6 and cone 10 kilns: prevents major mishaps in favor of minor mishaps (;
