The TnF-1613-3 3" wall kiln is designed for porcelain, so it easily fires ceramics, china paint, decals and gold. The size is ideal for teachers of china paint or dolls. The 8-sided, 16 ½” wide and 13 ¼” deep interior is as tall as standard 7-sided kilns. The TnF-1613-3 kiln is 43% larger than the 66-3 series, yet costs only a few dollars more.
The TnF-1613-3 plugs into a 30 amp, 240 volt outlet. (The kiln is also available for international electrical systems.) It uses 6400 watts of power, more watts per cubic foot than conventional kilns. The extra wattage helps compensate for aging elements or low voltage. This extra power is ample for cone 10 and, if desired, rapid heating. Elements last longer, because the extra wattage and thicker 3" firebricks help the elements reach porcelain temperatures without strain.

The Furniture Kit
The furniture kit consists of carefully selected fireclay shelves and posts for this particular model. When estimating the price of the kiln, include the cost of furniture. The furniture allows you to stack multiple layers of ware. Without it, you could fire only the ware that would fit on the kiln bottom.

A deluxe kiln stand with locking casters is included at no extra charge. You will enjoy the convenience of effortlessly moving the kiln out of the way when not in use.
The new stand has a mounting bracket for the Orton Kiln Vent and a greenware drying rack. To install an Orton Kiln Vent, slide the collection cup into the vent bracket. The new stand eliminates the need for the collection cup mounting bolt.
Take advantage of the heat that radiates from the kiln. Load greenware on the lower shelf. Heat from the kiln will dry the ware and prepare it for the next firing. Save the time and electrical expense of drying the ware inside the kiln.
Assemble the stand with simple tools. The stand slides together with slots that line up the screw holes.

Have something good to say about the TNF1613? Tell Us
"I use this kiln primarily for testing. I need a test kiln that will approximately match much larger kilns in ventilation and firing programs. As a test kiln, the TnF-1613 is constantly firing. Many loads are small, but the interior size readily fits a full size tile setter with 9" wide shelves. The stand with casters is a must-have, and I couldn't function without the controller and the ventilation fan. For reliability, workhorse use, and maintainability, this kiln is perfect for testing and small projects." - Nancy Krug, Winter Garden, FL
