  1. Hi, We have an old Alpine gas kiln, and would love to find a good local repair person. We are in Bucks County (Bucks County Community College) 45 min from Phila, near NJ. Our kiln is REALLY old--serial # 121, from the 1970's?
  2. Is anyone here familiar with the electric-to-gas conversion kits manufactured by Summit? The one I'm considering is the GV-18. A while back someone was clearing out their storage shed and I got an old worn-out kiln, a Lockerbie kick wheel and a venturi burner (they had been planning to make a raku kiln out of it. I'm not interested in raku, and I fear one burner will be inadequate for efficient Cone 8 firing. The GV-18 kit has two burners and a steel stand. By the time I bought another burner and fabricated a stand, I'd probably be close to the cost of the conversion kit, which is a little over 200 bucks. Any experience or opinions? (I'm aware of the drawbacks of updraft kilns.)
  3. Hi! I plan to build a small gas kiln to start my first experiments in ceramics. I researched a bit, flipped through some books, and it seemed accessible to me to build a little double crossdraft kiln. This model of kiln, known in Japanese as itte-koi-gama (いってこい窯) , is popular as a wood kiln (the Phoenix kiln or Philosopher’s Kiln) but little used on gas. It looks like a plan for a small gas kiln was published on Building Your Own Kiln, Three Japanese Potters Give Advice And Instructions , but I didn't have access to this book. So looking at some kilns over the internet (1, 2, 3, 4, 5) I made a plan for a kiln to firing in cone 10 for two 12X12 inch kiln shelves, the chamber is 3,1 ft³. I wonder if anyone has ever had contact with such a gas kiln. My main question is about the size of the chimney. The models I saw didn't have a big chimney, which leaves me wondering about Fred Olsen's rule. What do you think? I was thinking of building a five-foot chimney. The input size corresponds to the output size and the size of the chimney tunnel. Is it better or safer to have a wider chimney or not? Any comments that might help me in this kiln are welcome, thanks!
  4. From the album: Gas Kiln

    I put these shelves in with some extra space so the flames can flow through a bit easier.

    So I am curious if I need to place something over the inlet flues to redirect the flow of the flame so it doesn't just shoot straight up. Anyone know?
