  1. Hey everyone! Question- I have an Older Duncan AE 820 Teacher plus - I have not fired it yet but everything "should" be in working order. The walls and elements look like they are in very good condition. I've got my studio wired to fire. My next step this weekend is buying some furniture, cones and a vent system.... My kiln has a finger sized hole in the center of the lid - and no holes underneath. So I am assuming it has never had a downdraft system installed. My studio is very small and has no functional window at the moment. Should I invest in the Orton VentMaster Downdraft Kiln Venting System 110V? Do I need to plug the hole in the lid?
  2. Hi Guys, I have a small test kiln from paragon that has one peep hole and no vent. Everyone that I have contacted says that small test kilns don't need to be vented, just prop the lid open for the first few hours of firing and then close it. I have not had any success with this. I tried keeping it propped open until it reaches 1400 degrees, however it never reaches that temperature probably because the heat is escaping. It's mainly affecting my red glazes right now, however all of my glazes come out very dark and the red ones look burnt and brown ALL the time. After doing a lot of research, I can only guess that its because there isn't proper ventilation happening inside of the kiln. Is there a way that I can vent the kiln myself? I can't really afford an actual venting system right now, and I don't even know if those would work on my kiln because it's so small. Does anyone have any recommendations?
