Product: E9AX Kiln, Model/SKU: E9AX, Price: $675.00

E9AX

China Painting    Decals    Enameling    Glass Fusing    Low-Fire Ceramics   


Paragon E-9AX

The E-9AX fires to 2000°F on a common 120 volt wall outlet. Create breathtaking jewelry or small keepsakes using almost any medium you can imagine: enameling, china painting, glass, lost wax casting, and ceramics. Since the kiln opens from the front instead of the top, it is ideal for copper enameling.

The E-9AX comes with an infinite control switch, safety pilot light, and pyrometer (temperature sensor). The pyrometer simplifies kiln operation. It shows you what is happening inside the kiln and helps you to become comfortable with firing. By watching the pyrometer and adjusting the switch, you can even hold (soak) the temperature.

The switch, pilot light, and pyrometer are mounted in the kiln base (instead of a side switch box) to save table space. The front control panel is tilted for easy operation.

A 1/2” hole is stamped into the steel door case and includes a brushed stainless steel cover. We have left the firebrick behind the hole undrilled so that you can drill it to the exact size that you need for a peephole, vent hole, or extra pyrometer hole. (Most people do not need the hole and leave the firebrick undrilled.)

Adjust the firing speed with the infinite control switch. It cycles on and off through a bi-metallic timer. The higher the switch setting, the longer the heating elements stay on during each cycle. When the switch is turned to High, the elements stay on continuously. (Note: The switch does not automatically hold a temperature. It requires small adjustments to maintain a temperature hold.)

The E-9AX heating element, exposed in dropped, recessed insulating firebrick grooves, is easy to replace. The firebricks store plenty of heat for slow cooling through the glass annealing range. For small glass pieces such as jewelry, you can anneal without having to turn the elements back on during cooling. (Extra heat is necessary for annealing large pieces, however.)

Unlatch and open the door with one hand. No extra stand is needed; the built-in base stays cool during operation.

Paragon kilns are built to be dependable. They are loaded with attention to details, such as the costly nickel-plated copper wire with high temperature glass-braided insulation. Wires are fastened to the elements with heat-dissipating connectors refined and proven over many years in Paragon kilns.

Imagine the glass you could sag, slump, and fuse with this kiln. Make bowls, platters, pendants, earrings, cufflinks, and even bracelets. Enjoy the glittering beauty of dichroics. This kiln will give you years of creative enjoyment.

Becky Johnson, a glass teacher in Dallas, Texas, describes opening the kiln: “I like to open the kiln with my students so that we can review and admire each other’s treasures together. The transformation of the glass inside the kiln is magical and mystical. It changes from pieces of arranged cut glass to awe-inspiring art. To be some part of that process is a true gift.”

“Paragon kilns just go on working forever,” said Jeff Zamek, author of “What Every Potter Should Know.” He added, “Paragon kilns have one of the lowest incidences of repair of any kiln manufactured in the U.S.”
