Default 1st Kiln

I have recently gotten into this worlds of glass, have a bobcat, and a Kentucky maid, so need a kiln, plan to do mostly small items like pendants with an occasional up to about 10" rig, can anyone recommend a kiln i was thinking the bluebird xl bit the 4.5" inside height seems too small. Also am plannning on upgrading to a lynx and maybe a cheetah depending on kiln cost.

Can't go wrong w/Glass Hive - got mine about 9-10 years ago & have never had a problem w/it.

Snork. Well, except for turning it on for the first time - it came pre-programmed w/instructions, but .... they also have excellent customer service who won't laugh at you even w/the silliest questions

Paragon F120 or F130 have the door that opens upward and a big chamber for larger pieces, but not so big that you would never want to use it for smaller things. Check Kiln Frog - I think they have good prices and free shipping.
