  1. Hi everyone! I just recently bought a used Cress FX27P electric kiln so I can start firing work at home. So I just recently started my first bisque firing yesterday at 4pm. It was more of a test fire, so I didn't put a lot of work in there, about 15 wheel thrown pieces. There were a couple pieces in there that were not fully bone dry so I set the firing speed at E, the slowest speed. I also put a pyrometric cone (04) in the sitter, 1 peep hole open, and set the thumb wheel to 1, and I set the timer to 16 hours so it can shut off at that time in case anything goes wrong. Throughout the day
  2. Hello all, I'm looking at purchasing a used Cress FX-23 P electric kiln and wondering if anyone has experience with this model? It's just shy of $500 which seems a fair price(?). I'm planning to use it primarily as a bisque kiln, perhaps with a few ^6 fires thrown in for fun. It seems like a sound buy from a company that is still active but if anyone has experiences (good or bad) I'm all ears. Also if anyone can spot check me on this: I had a 240v outlet installed sometime ago for an electric dryer and I'm thinking we can re-purpose that for the kiln (it's asking for 220v and 25amps on th
  3. Hello all! I currently have a Cress FX1814P manual kiln (with kiln sitter) that I have been using for about 10 years. I got it (very) used, since it's circa approximately 1978. I have had to replace a relay since I've had it, and the brick on the inside has a couple of chunks missing, but all in all it's been a really good little kiln. I have been contemplating purchasing a new kiln, and have narrowed it down to the Cress E1414 automatic kiln, due to it having the electronic readout. I am, however, having a tough time finding any reviews at all for either of them, and was wondering
  4. I am in the position to buy a used E23 cress electronic kiln. It has only been fired for china painting (017) and only less than a dozen times. However, after checking the serial number I realize that it is a 2002 model. I looked at this kiln and it is in near mint condition and was kept inside the home with a ventilator system attachement - any information would be great in helping me with this purchase- thank you!
  5. Hi Team, I purchased an old Cress B-1411 with 2x Thrumwheels and a kiln sitter. I went to bisque fire to cone 04 and after 14 hours and fully cranked it did not hit temp. I cranked the bottom thumb wheel, and see the indicator light on, and see the bottom coil become red hot. I also here the relay pulsing. When I crank the top thumb wheel the indicator light comes on but none of the coils become hot. I had an electrician friend come by and check the pulses. The top relay does not produce much of any output. I do not see any visual breaks in the coils. My first question is, bas
  6. I’ve just gotten up and running with my new-used Cress B23h kiln. I have ran two bisque loads to 06 and last night I got my first collection glazed. I loaded up my kiln with the glazed pieces to fire to come 6. It’s only a small load. I switched it on this morning and left on low for 2 hours and then bumped it up to medium. After about an hour or so the top pilot light went out and I don’t think the top elements are on. I’m wondering if the switch is the problem. When I noticed it was out, I turned the switch a little more and the light flashed on and then off again. Now it won’t turn on at al
