  1. Hello! I’m a newbie on this forum; happy to have finally made an account! I have been doing ceramics for a couple years and am finally taking the plunge for my first kiln. I found a used Skutt SK 818 on craigslist, one owner who bought it new. Model: 818-240 , Phase 1, 240V, 40 Amps, Cone 10 It fits the bill specs wise for me, albeit a little smaller than I would have preferred but still good. The only concern i have is it looks like the bricks on the inside look kind of rough. Drip stains on the floor and walls but the coils look really straight up at least as far as i can see on the photos. Haven’t gone to see it in person yet since they are about 3 hrs away and wanna make sure its a good deal before I do. Should i be concerned with the look of the bricks? Pictures below! Price is $475 with stand and other accessories. Thank you in advance for all for your knowledge and advice! Cynthia
  2. I am a ceramic hobbyist looking to buy a used kiln. I have found a few on craigslist in my area, but I don't really know what I am looking at. I know how to load a kiln, but have no experience doing my own firing. I found a used Westby, but it seems this company has been out of business for some time. I looked at new kilns but my budget is nowhere near enough to buy new. Any suggestions on what to look for, or what to stay away from. Has anyone built their own kiln? I know I will have to put in a separate breaker for it, but my husband is an electrical engineer, so that is no problem. Do any of you use your kiln in your basement? Our basement is large, with a cement floor. We also have a detached garage, so that is my other idea.
  3. Hello everyone! I am currently searching for my first kiln online through ebay and craiglist I found this listing but I have never bought a kiln before and I am not very familiar with this brand of kiln. I did google it but little information came up so I'm worried the company is no longer around or its just a bad kiln. Can anyone offer advice on the listing or things to be aware of when buying a used kiln? thank you so much! Listing: "Perfect Holiday Gift for the Serious, Experienced Ceramics Enthusiast..."Good (name brand) Kiln/Slipmaster" Electric Kiln. It has never been used, but has been stored safely and securely in my dry, clean basement/garage. The kiln is in pristine condition, as if brand new. I purchased it in 2005 as a gift for my daughter, who was graduating from her college art program, but she couldn't find the time for her pottery and sculpture after beginning her career.Included with the kiln itself:Wired Dawson Kiln Sitter Timer, Model LT-3...(240 VAC, 50 amps, 60 Hz N.1)Also includes three jars of glaze, cones, and kiln stilts.Asking $1200.00 OBO (cash only, no exceptions) *You must make your own arrangements to move and transport it. Dimensions: Outer Diameter 28"Outer Height 37" (to the floor)Inner Kiln Diameter 23"Inner Kiln Depth 26""
  4. I bought a used Paragon DTC 100C, but am not sure it works. Is there an easy and safe way to test it without buying a stand or other items I will not use if it does not work. We have 220 in my shop, cement floors, tons of space. I will upload photos when I am at my computer. They are too big to load from my phone. Thanks!
  5. So a few weeks back, I bought a used Brent wheel and an old Duncan 1029 kiln for $200 at a yard sale. A while later, I noticed the manufacturer's plate on the side of the kiln's control box says max cone 8, but max temp 2345F. So which one do I pay attention to? I've never fired to cone 10, but it'd be nice to be able to give it a shot if it wouldn't destroy the kiln. TIA! Sloan
  6. I'm getting a little frustrated with firing at my community studio because of the length of time it takes to get a piece from greenware to finished glaze ... sometimes as much as 3 weeks depending on my timing at the studio and theirs. So I started looking for used kilns. I've found a Skutt 1027 which is the 3 section model, purchased new in 1999, one owner , but not fired since 2008. The pictures it looks brand new ... no rust, dust, etc. They are asking $800 but I have not begun negotiating because I like my ducks in a row first. So ... questions. Is $800 a fair price? What should I reasonably expect them to demonstrate? ie turns on, controller moves through programs, etc? It's 220 which I'll have to have an electrician put in so I can't check anything yet. What else to ask/consider? Thanks for your time!
