  1. 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 l
  2. 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
  3. I'm always very curious to know more about this flue exit which is along the kiln as a channel in the ground. I do not know how to name it and also never found information about it. Would anyone know how to name it? It seems to be very common among Japanese industrial downdraft kilns. And looks very interesting to the draft. Sorry for poor English.
  4. Gas Kiln problem I have a West Coast Gas Kiln that I can't get burner to ignite. Pilot lights, thermocouple appears to open and close Baso switch, and the solenoid appears to open and close when I apply 120v to it isolated from the rest of the system. But it doesn't respond when it's connected to the rest of the system. Particulars: Baso L62GB-3, ASCO K3A462T Solenoid. Controller I can't figure out it's manufacture. Here's what I know. I can get the pilot light to stay lit by pressing the Baso switch, lighting pilot, and keeping depressed 15 sec. Checking continuity between
  5. Hi folks, I am new to this forum and apologise if my questions have been and gone before, I’m sure they have! I have bought an old gas fired port-o-kiln and have had in installed into the granite lean to which has a tin roof, at the end of the stables (no horses in there anymore) it seems like a good space. Its small but there is air flow. The kiln is small, it has two burners in v good condition and I have a19kg bottle of propane for it. The kiln didn’t come with a flu or hood so I have got someone to fashion a basic hood and chimney to take the heat and fumes out. There is about an 8
  6. Hi, I am new to this forum and I am looking for some advice. My wife and I are looking to install a kiln in our home. She primarily throws on the potters wheel, small bowls & dishes. We have an electric kiln & potters wheel, however due to our breaker box situation, there is no way for us to run a 220V line to the electric kiln without spending a pretty penny to expand and draw more power. We found a good sized, used gas kiln for sale, about $250. Great shape. Few questions on my mind: 1. Can you run a traditional natural gas line (like you would
  7. Hey guys! Up till now, I have been using an electric kiln for my pottery. It was a powerful, custom build, three-phase 400V kiln. Unfortunately, a building that I was renting a studio from is sold, and I have to move out to the new place. I found very affordable and beautiful place, but that building provides only single-phase 220V electricity. That's not enough for me, so I am thinking to move onto a gas kiln. And then I am facing another issue - loudness. I know gas burners can get pretty loud, and I am not allowed to disturb artists working on the other side of the walls. Does any
  8. From the album: Gas Kiln

    I put these shelves in with some extra space so the flames can flow through a bit easier.
  9. From the album: Gas Kiln

    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?
