  1. Hello! I teach high school ceramics, with about 50-65 students per semester. I also teach advanced ceramics (wheel throwing) to about 10-15 students per semester.

We have always used the rough sides, but after many years of use, they have worn down and now have smooth rings/cirlcle on each one.

I have been given permission to order a replacement kiln, with more interior space. The location of the kiln can only accommodate 40" exterior in one direction, and maybe 45"-48" in the other, maximum. The one I have now is 29"x 29" and 32" h
  4. I too have one of these kilns, which I have used for enameling. It works well. I am interested in selling it, but can’t find much info about it to pass on. Any info you have found would be greatly appreciated!
