  1. Hi there! After receiving some truly valuable information from a knowledgeable community member on here, I've decided to give up on my old kiln and invest in a new one. Since then I've begun researching which kiln might be right for me. I am planning on only firing low fire, cone 06 clay, and glaze of the same cone temperature. I would love a kiln that might double as a jewelry making kiln so that I may create some pieces out of metal clay as well. I came across the Evenheat Kingpin 88 on a ceramics website, and at first glance, thought it might be perfect. However, everywhere that sells it mentions that its great for jewelry making, glass etc. but nothing about ceramics. I'm not sure if it's because most people would get a kiln with a higher maximum temp to do so, or if there is another reason. Hoping someone out there knows if this kiln could be used for ceramics as well! Thanks so much in advance!!! -April
  2. Thanks so much for the info! I really appreciate it. You've convinced me to save up for a new kiln
  3. Hi there, I've been into ceramics for many years but haven't done the entire process myself (namely, the firing). Some guidance would be so very much appreciated and extremely helpful! I inherited a kiln over a year ago and have spent a lot of time trying to get it up and running. It has two 220 plugs, which has been the main struggle in getting it hooked up, as I've only been able to get access to one at a time. I am considering abandoning hope on the old kiln and buying a (newer) used one. I found some nearby for sale, specifically a Duncan "The Pro" Energy Saver ES 1029-1, as well as a Duncan DK 1029-2. Does anyone have any advice as to which, if either, would be better for someone totally new to firing their own pieces? Would these kilns have two 220 plugs as well? I'm not sure if that's a standard characteristic of kilns or perhaps just on the old ones like my original. I've tried doing research but just keep ending up frustrated and chasing my own tail. Thank you so very much in advance!
