F120

Glass Bead Annealing    Lamp Working   


Features

  • Feature: frequency of use does not affect warranty
  • Feature: Optional color at no extra charge
  • Paragon F-120 Lamp Working Kiln

    Anneal large glass figurines in the digital F-120 lamp working kiln. Raise the spring-loaded vertical-drop door to insert a glass figurine with a punty rod. Lower the door. The punty rod extends outside the firing chamber through the smaller 2” x 8” punty rod door. This allows the glass to anneal safely.

    You can make figurines up to 5” tall in the F-120. Maintain the annealing temperature indefinitely with the Sentry Xpress 3-key controller.

    Ease of operation will delight you. Never before has lamp work been so easy in this price range. Imagine the massive, award-winning figurines you will make with this kiln.

    New conversion stand included with the F-120

    The F-120 comes with a heavy-duty Conversion Stand. The Conversion Stand adds a mandrel holder (also called a point rest) to your F-120. Simply place the kiln on top of the Conversion Stand. Then adjust the mandrel holder vertically and horizontally. The holder slides inside steel tubes. The stainless steel mandrel rest includes 7 slots.

    Features of the Sentry Xpress digital controller

    The Sentry Xpress 3-key controller is packed with features. It includes two modes: Single Speed and 8-segment Ramp-Hold.

    • Fire to a single temperature at a single speed in the simplified Single Speed mode.
    • Design programs with up to 8 segments (steps) in Ramp-Hold mode.
    • Ramp-Hold mode can store 4 programs.
    • Skip a segment in Ramp-Hold during firing without having to stop the kiln to reprogram.
    • Change the target temperature in Ramp-Hold during firing without having to stop the kiln to reprogram.
    • Hold (soak) the temperature in both Single Speed and Ramp-Hold.
    • Add Hold Time during firing without having to stop the kiln to reprogram.
    • Control both heating and cooling in Ramp-Hold.
    • Check the program you are about to fire with Program Review.
    • Program the Temperature Alarm to sound when the kiln reaches a specific temperature. Use this to remind yourself to check on the kiln.
    • Temperature display throughout firing and cooling in your choice of °F or °C
    • Thermocouple Offset adjusts the thermocouple readout.
    • Set the Delay to turn on the kiln later to suit your schedule.
    • Error Messages report mechanical problems such as a disconnected thermocouple, stuck relay or broken element.
    • 12 Month Warranty
    • LED Lights show whether you are in program, review, or firing mode.
    • Colorful, illustrated instruction manual. Download it from the “Additional Information” section below to review these features in more detail.

    Pinless element grooves

    The F-120 elements are mounted in pinless grooves in the 3” thick firebrick roof. The element coils are wider than the groove opening, so the elements stay in place without pins. With the element in the top, you can also fuse and slump glass.

    Imagine the glass you could sag, slump, and fuse with this kiln. Make small pendants, earrings, cufflinks, and even bracelets. Enjoy the glittering beauty of dichroics.

    Made in America

    The kiln is made at the Paragon factory in Mesquite, Texas, which is about 20 minutes east of Dallas. Our kilns are not merely assembled—they are hand crafted by skilled workers. Fifty-one percent of them have been with Paragon for over a decade. Even the instruction manuals are printed by offset at our Mesquite, Texas factory.

    Tested by TUV

    And for your safety, the F-120 is tested by TUV, Germany’s leading testing lab, to meet UL and CSA standards.

    Instruction manual

    Included with your kiln is a 16-page controller instruction manual and a quick start programming guide, all written in plain English and fully illustrated.
