I have rang many companies today asking their advice on kilns. The official skutt suppliers in the uk are very unhelpful and I have already had a bad experience with them when buying my skutt wheel. They forgot to put a plug on it and also forgot to include the head extension for the wheel. A few other companies I have spoken to are not much better. When I am looking to spend over £1500 you would think they would be helpful and not just sound bored.
I am looking to buy a large amount of high temp wire for my kiln. I think the main wires coming from the plug need replacing.
What would be the best way to do this? What different options do I have for the wire? I bought 4m of high temp silicone wire but it was quite expensive per metre. What gauge would you recommend? I think what I have is 8 but I can't remember the numbering system ever. I would prefer to over spec. Can you buy a three core high temp wire?
I am not expecting it to be cheap, I want to buy a big roll. Don't mind about the colour. Will be needing it for the next 50 years I think.
