  1. Hello! I have a question regarding what cones my kiln is able to fire to. I’m using a manual skutt 1227 that hasn’t been used in approximately 4yrs. I am a school teacher and have been told this kiln has been at the school since 1996. I have successfully fired the kiln up to cone 04 with low fire clay and glazes. Today I tried to fire some cone 6 clay/glazes, but after about 9.5 hrs on high the kiln still had not reached cone 6 temps. Could this be a problem of needing new elements? Or something more complex?
  2. I am looking to buy a used Gare 1818 from a guy on Craigslist, but I cannot find any information on this kiln. I realize it’s an older kiln model, and I read that Gare was rebranded to Evenheat. This would be my first kiln so I wanted to do my research, and I was hoping to find a manual or something online but I’m coming up empty. Does anyone have any information on this kiln? Used kilns are hard to come by in my area, so I’m debating on just buying it anyway, and hoping for the best.
  3. 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 2250F, that would be pushing my old kiln to it's absolute limit. Would converting the voltage make that doable? Or is that too dangerous? Thank you for any insight you can give me! I don't want to cause a fire from blindly experimenting, haha!
