  1. I am rebuilding an old Duncan DK820-2 kiln for testing glazes. I need to replace the elements because of age and plan wind my own. I have ordered from Euclid 14 gauge Kenthal A1. Euclid says that the ohm reading should be 4.5 ohm for each element. The problem here is that this is close to the OLD manual that says it should be 4.6 but the new elements from Paragon (the current owner of Duncan) are 5. I did the math and according to the formulations it should be 5 for the specs on the boiler plate of the kiln. Paragon sells 220V elements at 4.6 ohm, 240V at 5 ohm, my kiln is 240V. Is Eucli
  2. Hi, I am new to ceramic glazing. Are there any methods that can duplicate fire-based glazing on ceramics? I work at home, so i do not have access to kiln. I have read there are oven-based glazes and non-fire based glaze. How effective are they in terms of the glaze (will it be similar to fire glazed plate)? Thank You.
  3. How long will an average kiln being fired twice a month to bisque and cone 6 last? I know there are incredible variables and you can never be sure. Elements need replacing, fuses blow, thermacouples need replacing. It is different from kiln to kiln. I can't seem to find a rough average or generalization anywhere online. I'm mostly just curious! Any input is great!
  4. Looking for help and some explanation. I have the opportunity to buy a Duncan The Teacher model ES 820-4. I am very new to ceramics and need all the help I can get. I found what I believe is the manual for this kiln although the model number says “DA 820-4” instead of “ES”. It also says that the voltage is 208. We have 240 and were planning on wiring it’s own box but how can I make the 208 work? I’m also confused because in the photo of the kiln, the kiln sitter says 240v. How can the kiln be 208 and the sitter 240? I’m very confused and would appreciate any and all help.
  5. Does anyone have a copy or link of the relay wiring diagram for the Duncan EA 1029 N. I have found kiln service book with wiring diagrams for the DK and e1029 on paragon's website. I also have a copy of a EA & DA 1029-2 -4.wiring diagram. None of these match the exact wiring of my kiln though. We made the mistake of taking out the old relays before obtaining new ones. Thank you
  6. Is it possible to rebuild a kiln lid? My Duncan EA-1029 Pro-Plus runs great but the ceramic fiber lid and floor are in tough shape. I'm considering building (vs. replacing) the lid using firebrick and kiln cement. Is this an option? Thanks for your feedback. I've been searching for answers for weeks and was led to this forum.
  7. Hello, I'm working on getting a kiln, and I'm considering getting a used Duncan automatic teacher plus. They are asking for $850 for it and say they only fired it a couple times. I haven't been able to find anything about this kiln, or a new one listed for sale on any of the websites I've previously looked at like clay king, kiln frog, etc. I don't feel very comfortable buying a kiln I can't find any info about. Does anyone have experience with this particular kiln? Is the price reasonable? I can't even figure out what size it is!
