Vertical-Drop Door Kiln - Swings upward!

Why a Vertical-Drop Door? There is heat on the inside of a kiln door. Kilns with swing out doors expose you to the hot inside door. But this Vertical-Drop door swings up never exposing you to that hot door. A digital controller which includes a pyrometer is included with kiln. This bead kiln, made with insulated fire brick, can also be used for fusing glass, ceramics, copper enameling, or many different uses. All kilns should be kept 12" from any flammable materials. The fiber cloth door covering pictured, is included free with the kiln.


  • Anneal large glass figurines in this digital lampworking kiln. Raise the spring-loaded vertical-drop door to insert a glass figurine with a punty rod. Lower the door. The punty rod extends outside the firing chamber through the smaller punty rod door. This allows the glass to anneal safely.

  • You can make figurines up to 11" tall. Maintain the annealing temperature indefinitely with the

  • Sentry Xpress 3-key controller: The Sentry Xpress 3-key controller is packed with features. It includes two modes: single Speed and 8-segment Ramp-Hold.

  • Previously employed machanical relay, now comes standard with long lasting industrial mercury relay.

  • Now with a slide out mandrel holder (also called a point rest, adjustable horizontally and vertically without tools. The holder slides inside steel tubes, which are hidden in the base of the kiln.

  • Now Comes Standard with sidewall elements, although if you prefer can still be ordered with top elements.

Important Shipping Information about Kilns
(Shipping Estimates Will Not Be Correct)

The shipping quote for your order of the F13 kiln in the shopping cart check out will not reflect the actual shipping total of the order; the shipping total for orders that include the F13 need to be calculated by our customer service representatives. One of our service representatives will contact you with the lowest shipping price available for your location.

When we have the F13 in stock we ship to California, Nevada and Arizona by next day or second day service with no extra fee (this service is not available for some locales in these states); for customers in other areas of the USA and Canada, the kilns are drop shipped separately from the manufacturer. If the manufacturer has the kiln you've ordered in stock it will be shipped fairly soon. However, please note that shipping may be delayed 2-5 weeks if the manufacturer does not have the kiln in stock. This is especially true during the holiday season and other busy times of the year.

You will be contacted by one of our customer service representatives once your order has been processed and your shipping total has been calculated.

Remember, the kiln is usually not at full power when it is used. Usually it runs at half power to anneal glass or when controller heats up the kiln slowly.

Why have a side door opening for a glass bead kiln?

  • Comfort. Sure, one could put a piece of glass or mandrel into any kiln. But when you lift the lid a blast of 1000° heat will hit you. The unique feature of this kiln is small door in the large door.
  • This allows you to insert beads or other glass pieces through the small door without much heat discomfort.
  • The side door is also great for preheating glass rods.
  • Premade glass pieces which will be intended to be removed for working in the flame can be passed to and from the kiln through the side door opening without much heat discomfort.

Ease of operation will delight you. Never before has lamp work been so easy in this price range. Imagine the massive, award-winning figurines you will be able to make with this kiln.

The F-series lid elements use a new element groove that eliminates element pins. The element coils are wider than the groove opening, so the elements stay in place without pins. The element is mounted in the top of the kiln for safety. There is no sidewall element to touch with a punty rod. With the element in the top, you can also fuse and slump glass.

Imagine the glass you could sag, slump, and fuse with this kiln. Make small bowls, pendants, earrings, cufflinks, and even bracelets. Enjoy the glittering beauty of Dichroics. This kiln will give you a haven of creative enjoyment that you will enjoy for many years.
