#34156 Thinking of buying a small to medium sized electric kiln

Posted by CKPottery on 05 May 2013 - 11:37 PM

I just purchased an Olympic kiln from Clay-King. I was originally looking for a Skutt or an L&L but the price difference was the deal breaker. The "Freedom" series comes with the vent, stand, furniture, spare thermocouple and element, kilnwash, firebrick repair stuff, and even the wire tools to replace the electric elements if needed. The 2327 is approx 7 cubic feet and requires a 60 amp breaker (single phase). The biggest problem I had was that our house was remodeled at one point and the fuse panel is MAXED out. It was a very expensive lesson... my advice is to get an electrician to come look at your capabilities before you decide on anything.
