Paragon F-130 Kiln?
I am contemplating the idea of getting a Paragon F130 Kiln.
I like pretty much everything about it, except the fact that the elements are located in the top.
That does worry me. I find 13 inches high to have only the element on top, especially that heat rises...
I was wondering if some of you have this model, how you like it and / or your toughts on the issue.
I want to use this to make sculptures and also for small glass pendants and ocasional beads. I often make one bigger sculpture (or portion) and a few pendants in a session. I just want to make sure the heat is even enough so I don't have problems...
I am also considering the Glass Hive Economy 9" so 12 x 12 x 9 high.
The only thing worrying me on this one is the open gap at the bottom of the door and the controller. I read a lot of good about it here! How's the digital controller? I work boro, moretti (small and bigger pieces) and now 96coe. I also want to experiment with kiln striking boro colors... so there you go, already 4 programs just there! I am worried the controller would limit me. But if is is very quick and easy to program I could just program whatever I want after I am done working and soaking at the set point temp.
Do play with fire!
