I've been given a kiln. It is an Olympic with an LT-3K Sitter. My husband can replace the end plug. I will add photos. I would like to start off with simple bowls, cups and plates. I dont know if this is a good kiln or not. No local classes or studios to fire because canceled due to Covid. Any advice would be so appreciated. I dont know how to share my photos of the kiln. I dont know their URL.
Hey! Some friends and I are in process of setting up a vintage 2327 Olympic kiln, if I'm reading the serial number correctly it was manufactured in the mid 1970's. We're all a bit new to the process and have never fired it before, and as we're in a very remote part of central Oregon, local resources & advice is many hours' drive away. I know it's not the ideal for a starter kiln but sometimes you do your best with what's available. The kiln has been in dry storage for fifteen years; prior to that, I don't know its history. The inside of the kiln appears free from mold or corrosion, the elements look good, the wiring appears in good condition and undamaged, but a few fire bricks are chipped around one of the rings. Is this a very serious problem or for a likely couple-times-a-year hobby use this machine will (hopefully) get, alright to leave as-is? Thanks very much!
