Affordable Kiln Shelves

I'm new to working with a kiln and I need some advice on where to shop online for suplies and equipment. I was hoping someone could direct me to a low cost source for kiln shelves. I'm slumping and fusing bottle glass so they don't need to take too much weight, I need to get 2 more 20x20 inch shelve...

Re: Can I use this kiln for glass?

I ran my first fuse last night and it took everything I had not to open it and look. I'm going to order the window, for the price it's worth it. Since I'll be mostly working with bottle glass the trial and error will be a lot easier if I can see what's happening.

Re: Can I use this kiln for glass?

Thanks for the responses everyone! I successfully slumped a bottle and plan to try fusing some scrap glass this week. I did have one question, is there any way for me to add a viewing window or a peep hole to the kiln? I figured since it doesn't have coils in the door it would be a possible to add o...

Can I use this kiln for glass?

Hi, I bought a kiln this week at auction and when I got it home I discovered it's actual a kiln for heat treating metal. It's a paragon PMT21 and it has a sentry 2.0 controller that looks the same as the ones on the cermic/glass kiln. When I looked it up on line it appeared that only diffrence was t...

Re: Kiln Recommendation

Unfortunately I'll be at the grand canyon that weekend or I would be taking classes. I found a Skutt KM818 locally. It's fairly new with the digital controller. Will it have firing scheduals for glass built in or would I have to manualy program everything if I bought it? It's only $750 but it comes ...

Re: Kiln Recommendation

Thanks for the advice. I was pumped about the show when I found out about it a couple weeks ago but then I realized it was on a weekend when we're out of town. I did have one question about the glass kilns versus the ceramic kilns. Is there any real difference between them? I know some of the cerami...

Re: Kiln Recommendation

The bead part is something the wife wants to try but I think it will be the minority of the usage. I do expect we'll make big runs of the large round beads made from the necks of the bottles. Size wise I want to be able to make vases and bowls so my big concern was depth. A vase could easily be a fo...

Kiln Recommendation

Hi, currently we are doing cold working using old liquor and wine bottles. We would like to expand into making beads, slumping, and fusing but I am having a hard time figuring out what kiln we should get. We want to do some slumping with the bottles but we also want to try our hand at making other t...
