Posted 13 Dec 2012Hi, need some expert advice please! So I am ready to get the kiln set up and I have two questions.
I am having a cover built for it over a concrete pad - roof, no walls, and need to know how high it needs to be. This is the kiln, most likely it's Crucible:
Also how big of a gas tank should I get for it? Will 150 gallons be enough? Or should I get 250?
Thanks, this is my first kiln and I just want to make sure it is set up right!
Posted 2 Nov 2012OK, so I got all settled in and have my kiln and wheel here ready to set up. I am guessing this is what's called a kick wheel? The kiln, although I know it's gas, does not have a label - any ideas, tips on how to set up, operate?

Posted 15 Oct 2012Hi all,
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!
Posted 30 Sep 2012OK, so I am finally moving to a place where I have space for a kiln - YAY! But I do not have a kiln and can not afford to buy one. What is the least expensive way to build a kiln? Any help greatly appreciated!
