  1. Hey there! If anyone has some insight on this, I could really use an opinion. I have an Even Heat lowfire kiln that has a max firing temp of 2300 Fahrenheit. It currently handles 150 volt and plugs into a regular outlet in the garage. I have been wanting to fire at higher temps but this kiln takes forever to make it to ^04. And I tried to fire ^6 glaze once but after 20+ hours, it never reached temp. My plan has then been to convert it to 220 volt and make a new cord/plug, hoping the extra juice would get it to fire higher or faster. My concern is that because ^6 can reach 2250
  2. Hi! Does anyone have experience with Evenheat kilns? I am looking to buy my first kiln, is this in super bad condition (I’m way new!) for the price? The seller is holding it for me. She said that the last time it was used was in December and it worked great. https://www.facebook.com/marketplace/item/257974788856749/ thank you in advance for helping a newbie!
  3. 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 s
  4. We have an old evenheat kiln that we're struggling to master. It's a 4320 model but with the 4 toggle switches and not the 4 dials. Our problem is that the top element takes way longer to heat up than the other 3. We did a paper test and initially it appeared that the top element wasn't warming up at all, after 30 seconds the lower 3 elements had all scorched their pieces of paper while the top was still unmarked. We took the cover panel off and tightened a couple of wires that appeared overly loose, one going to the top element and one going to the grounding point. The top element now at
  5. I picked up two kilns today with unknown history. I got a Gare 1818 and Skutt LT-4K double. I did a little in my grandmother’s porcelain doll shop when I was a child. It she’s been gone some years and I haven’t had the opportunity to dabble since then. I messaged both manufacturers begging information from the serial numbers. My husband was worried over asbestos...these don’t look ancient so I assured him they would be hazard-free and I hope I wasn’t telling a fib. Husband is an electrician, welder, engineer, etc. so he’s confident he can inspect it and give me a thumbs up. The bricks o
