Paragon XX-4 Collar

We introduced the Paragon X-14J, a classic china painting kiln, in 1965. China painters all know friends who still fire the X-14J. With the separate lid and bottom, the kiln is easy to carry to seminars. Take it with you on vacation. The infinite control switch includes a safety pilot light. The X-14J fires to 1700°F on a common household outlet, making it ideal for apartment living.

The XX-4 is an add-on collar, which gives the X-14J 6½” of extra depth. The XX-4 collar requires a separate 120 volt, 5-15R circuit. The XX-4 collar raises maximum temperature to 2000ºF. The XX-4 collar is actually the center section of the X-14J without the lid, bottom, and stand.
