Setting up Your Kiln for flameworking.

To keep your table surface from getting hot, place your kiln of insulated fire brick feet. The bottom of a kiln gets hot. To keep your table surface from getting hot, you need to place your kiln on something to raise it off the table. We have insulated fire brick feet available but you could use red brick or anything similar. Spread apart for maximum stability. Remember, keep the kiln at least 12 inches from flammable material.

Set the base of the kiln on the insulated fire brick feet. Set the kiln base on the feet.

Set the Glass Bead Extension Kiln section on the kiln base.

Set Bead Extension on the kiln base.

There are two slots to insert your glass bead rack into your kiln. If you ordered your kiln with a built in bead rack, you can move the rack to one of two different locations. Some people like to put their beads far into the kiln and some do not want to reach far into the kiln.

To change the glass bead rack location just move the glass bead rack to a different location. To change the bead rack location, simply move the bead rack to a different slot. There are two sets of slots provided inside the kiln.

If your kiln has a peep hole, insert a peephole plug. If your kiln has a peep hole, insert a peephole plug.

If using a pyrometer, which measures the temperature, insert the thermocouple wire into the hole drilled into the side (usually the left side when). Be sure that the thermocouple is inserted at least one inch into the kiln. With first use the insulating material on the thermocouple will burn off. This is normal and will not affect the reading of the pyrometer. Do not cut the end of the wire. The dial control my come either attached to the kiln as shown in the pictures above or may come as a separate control unit labeled PCB1. Plug the kiln plug into the PCB1, then plug the power control box into a household plug.
