The Skutt Scarab XL

See Marcel Braun outline the details and features of the Scarab






Primary point rests The Controller
  • The software for the COE Controller was developed by Flameworker Marcel Braun to fit the specific needs of the Boro Flameworker.
  • It can be easy as pressing Go to start working and Go twice to anneal your piece and call it a night.
  • The Controller is programmed to heat to 1100 F but you can set it for whatever temperature you want.
  • You can choose between the 3 preset Annealing programs or creat your own.
  • Marcel knows how important it is to know how long your piece is at the set point temperature. That is why he programmed a feature in the controller that tells you exactly that amount of time. If you dip below that temperature it waits until it is back to set point and restarts the clock.
  • It also includes built in striking and repair programs.




Primary point rests Primary Point Rests

The Primary Point rests are designed to slide up and down to support your rods and tubes. If your handles are extremely long we would suggest adding the Optional Secondary Point Rest which extends further out from the kiln and is fully adjustable up and down.

When you are ready to anneal you slide all 3 point rests up tight against the doggie doors to seal off the chamber.

The point rests are constructed of solid brick and stainless steel for maximum life. To operate them simply loosen the the knob, slide the rest to the position desired and tighten the knob. It was specifically designed to be a one hand operation so you can hold your glass with the other hand.



Balanced main door Balanced Main door

The Main Chamber Door hinge system has been completely redesigned with precision hardware for smoother operation. The door is balanced using an counterweight. The arms holding the counter weight were engineered with a precise bend that places the counterweight in a neutral position when the door is half open. This allows for enough weight when the door is down to keep it closed and keeps it from wanting to get away from you when you open it.

The entire door is constructed of insulating fire brick surrounded by heavy gauge stainless steel. The handle is also constructed of stainless steel to prevent corrosion.





Balanced main door The "Doggie" Doors

The Doggie Doors (sometimes referred to as bead doors) are the brainchild of master flameworker Marcel Braun. They are constructed using a channeled stainless steel frame which holds a section of soft fiberboard. When you close the door it rests gently on your glass handles, sealing in the heat without scratching the glass. If they ever wear out you can replace them easily and inexpensively. The doors are counterbalanced to stay open on their own with weighted wood handles that stay cool to the touch.

One of the most valued design elements of the Scarab and Scarab XL kilns is the introduction of the Center Door. The center door allows you to use a single larger diameter tube or rod without affecting the tight seal on the other rods. Without it the larger diameter tube would hold the doggie door up higher, allowing unnecessary heat to escape…Brilliant!




Removable Chassis Removable Chassis

Let’s face it, these kilns are heavy!. The last thing you want to do is to start wrestling around with them to get at a component that needs to be replaced. All Scarab kilns are designed with a Removable Chassis which holds all the main electrical and electronic components. Just remove the screws that hold it in place and slide it out. You can even disconnect the power cord and ship the whole thing back to Skutt for testing if necessary.

One of the most problematic components of kilns has traditionally been the relays. Mechanical relays have a limited life which is why Skutt has upgraded all Scarab Kilns with Solid State Relays. These relays or kept cool with a fan mounted in the side of the kiln (not necessary on the Mini Scarab because the Amps are so low).



Built in Forklift Channels

Did we mention that these kilns are heavy? They weigh 770lbs! Because of this each Scarab XL kiln is equipped with built in forklift channels for moving with a forklift or pallet jack.





Secondary point rest Optional Secondary Point Rest

The Optional Secondary Point Rests, another unique design of Marcel Braun, are generally ordered on just about every Scarab that goes out of here. Flameworkers love its ability to hold long handles, preventing their work from popping up off the floor. Its well thought out design allows you to move the rest to almost any position you want. It not only moves in and out but also moves up and down. The scalloped edge ensures that your rods will stay in place.

Comes with kiln free of charge

Optional Stand

Purchasing the Optional Stand available for the Scarab and Mini Scarab is one of the smartest decisions you can make. Did I mention these things are heavy? These stands are built to not only hold the weight, but also to roll around. Think how nice it would be to roll your kiln out to your pickup and then back out to your demo location. Believe me, having moved literally a ton of these kilns, it makes a difference. The stands are constructed of heavy duty square tubing and are equipped with high quality locking metal wheels (won’t develop flat spots if they sit too long). It also has a convenient, built in, expanded metal tray that will catch falling glass and provides a place for your tools.
