  1. Hi all, I'm planning on building a hobby kiln for my partner, and am in the process of choosing refractory materials and kanthal wire for the heating element. Was hoping I could get some advice from anybody who knows about these things. I want the kiln to be light weight and very efficient. I'd like to use ceramic fibre board as an inner layer of insulation (rated to 1400 C / 2550 F), and calcium silicate board as a secondary layer (rated to 1000 C / 1830 F).

I see that people talk about using Kathal wire but I am wanting something that will be thicker and bend less. Any advice you can give regarding glazing beads in cone 6 environment would be welcome. Cheers, Amy
