FAQ/Answer

I have an opportunity to buy used a switch-operated firebrick kiln for metal clay. The kiln has no computer programmer. Will this be adequate for firing metal clay?

It is possible, though not easy, to fire metal clay without a digital controller. In addition to the kiln, you will need a pyrometer so that you can check the temperature of the kiln.

If you were going to fire enameling, then a manual kiln would be fine. It is easier to fire enameling with a digital kiln, but since the firing time is so short, enameling with a manual kiln is fairly easy, too. However, because of the long holding periods, we don't recommend a manual kiln for metal clay.
