well, i guess it is time to remove the carcass of the paragon a99 that has been dead for many years. it has been a handy shelf rest for loading and unloading the real kiln next to it but now i have a tiny paragon ready to take its place as a test kiln. the cord for the new one, an A66, has been modified to plug into the old Touch'nFire controller on the wall so it will allow for more consistent testing. Arnold Howard at paragon says this will work. looking forward to using it, once i can find someone to help get it out of the car.
is there anything i can do with the bricks i am taking out? many of them are undamaged and i hate to waste anything. the metal is going to the recycler. wish i could find something useful to do with the bricks. i have a number of pieces for propping things and the slots for the elements are in good shape. any ideas????
there is a second carcass of a totally empty kiln that i thought i would like to convert to gas. won't be happening since the propane i would have to use is ridiculously expensive. it is about the same size as the 99.
all ideas welcome as long as they do not involve landfills.
