  1. Hi! I just bought my first kiln which is a Nabertherm top 60. It says that the max temperature is 1300 C but I was wondering how hot can I actually fire it too. In the manual It says the company recommends firing 70 degree lower than max T . Does this means I will not be able to do high fire ? Is someone using this kiln at least to 1280? I will not fire it often as it's my personal use kiln, not a student studio (probably do 2 glaze firings per month). I was hoping someone here has a similar situation and would share some advice Thank you!! Carolina
  2. I have built about 35 years ago a 8 cuft. kiln with a turntable in the floor. It is heated by a single Silicon Carbide element and max input is about 15 kW. It fires to cone 10 . The advantage of the turntable is the heating is very uniform because tyhe heat transfer is mostly radiation and the rotation ensures uniformity, and a single element works fine. The turntable also makes loading easy . I would be happy to share details. The insulation is fiber plus 2600board. Efficiency is high so cost to fire is low. The controller I built allows for 16 discreet power levels but I would like to change to the Raspberry Pi controller so I dont have to watch it so often.
