Setting up Gas Kiln - Help Needed gas kiln set up
Posted 15 October 2012 - 01:09 PM
I have acquired a gas kiln (haven't seen it yet) A friend is picking it up for me and delivering it on Saturday. He told me that it had four burners, two valves and he did not see a thermostat on it. It's three feet high and about as big around as a washing machine tub. So.... my questions are, what type of gas tank do I need? Do I need to add a thermostat? What cone do you think I can get it up to? And is there anything else that I might need to do that you can think of? Thanks in advance, I really appreciate any advice, first kiln!

Thanks. Hopefully there is a label on it! And yes, I guess I did mean pyrometer and thermocouple Maybe I need to get a good book on gas firing too - any recommendations?

Wait to see it , find the brand and get the manual from the manufacturer..usually available on line.

My friend was telling me the same yesterday, he said he could convert if necessary. I hope I can find a label and get a manual.
