I purchased an inexpensive kiln, second hand  and very old. It’s made by Dryads of Leicester, I’ve searched and searched for info on them or a manual and I just can’t find a thing. Must be because it’s discontinued. 
 

the kiln operates with a dial, and it seems to go two ways with heating circuit off at 6oclock and full at 11oclock  and 1 Oclock. Has anyone come across such a kiln? What does the dial means for bisque and glaze fires.

 

thanks

Found an advert which suggests that Dryad Leicester is a model name not a manufacturer

Odd.  Dryad is a manufacturer of all kinds of craft items, based in Leicester, England.  I had a Dryad floor loom.

I don't think they exist any more.

Also, don't think that ad was correct.  I don't think Essex kilns make kilns, only sell and service.

@Han can you post some photos, then you might get some more advice.
