  1. Hi, I am new to this forum, and have been reading several posts... I have been doing ceramics at a local studio (classes) for a number of years and decided that it may be time to become a bit more independent have the chance to do work in addition to classes. Thus, I started looking into buying a kiln. I think I have narrowed it down to two choices (at least for the time being) but I still have so many questions! Maybe some of you can help answer any of them?? Choices: L&L easy fire kiln (seen better reviews for L&L compared to Skutt) - either a 18T-3 kiln or 23S-3 kiln ==> I mostly do small to medium size items, including bowls, cups, art work. I initially thought of getting an 18T but then saw a comment that with the posts it may get too narrow to place large items. I guess, a large/wide item could sit on the top shelf without posts? Then again, with the 23S there seems to be more room to play, and it is not so narrow an opening that the loading seems easier. But, does it take a lot longer to fill the 23S compared to the 18T? Location and venting: Also, still trying to figure out where to put it. We have plenty space in the basement. The only way i can vent the kiln is through one of the small windows, as i am not going to drill a 4" hole through the concrete foundation. I have been trying to figure out how big the plate is where the fan is attached to in the L&L venting system. based on drawings, it looks about 2X as tall as the 4" pipe and no idea how wide. Does anybody have the dimensions (I cannot find this anywhere and i looked on the L&L website/specs). Furnace issues? Our furnace is in the basement. Can the kiln be in the same room as the furnace (gas operated) and water heater? If yes, is there a minimum distance? Are there different guidelines/laws for this by state, county or city? Voltage: for the L&L kiln, when looking at the Sheffield Pottery site, it gives me the option of 1phase and 3phase (not for us). However, on the clayking site, I need to chose between 208V and 240V (single phase) when i place the order. I know we have 240V to the house, but I don't have a line/plug yet for this, and so i don't know if I need 208 or 240V. (I'd like to purchase this soon as there are some specials/deals and don't want to wait until after the holidays and see the prices go up significantly). Sorry for throwing out so many questions . I'd be grateful for any productive input into this!!
