Kiln mystery

23 June 2012 - 01:11 PM

Afternoon everyone. I come to you all with a story, and a question in the hopes that someone might be able to help me with a mystery kiln I just purchased. Now, I'm planning on constructing a studio to house this beast, but I'm going to clean it up a bit before I place it in it's final home. Now, according to the nice lady I purchased this kiln from, it was constructed by some University of Illinois grad students. It's labeled as a 'Quantum cycler Kilnn' It's a gas fired, down draft kiln and has a DTC 600C control unit. The story goes that they were going to get into the kiln building business, and I assume found that it was hard to profit, and sold just a few. Anyway, the kiln has been moved from illinois to georgia where it's going to reside.

My big question to the community is, does anyone have any other insight to this thing, or the folks who may have constructed it? I would love to know a little bit more about it. I figured at the price, even with the work it needs, it was a once in a lifetime opportunity to purchase it! I'm including a few pics of the kiln in question. Any help is greatly appreciated!!:)
