Paragon has just introduced a glass crucible kiln called the Vulcan. It heats glass to a molten state. Mix custom glass colors. Make huge glass figurines, paperweights, blown vessels, stringers, and much more. Pull your own neon tubing.
Sidewalls are 4 ½” thick. The extra insulation and heavy 12-gauge elements are designed for the stress of very long heat soaks. The S-Type thermocouple with ceramic protection tube far outlasts the standard K-Type.
The Vulcan has a separate bottom section with a row of 2 ½” high wall bricks, held in place with spring twist locks. Should a crucible crack during firing and leak glass onto the kiln bottom, merely replace the damaged bottom section.
The Vulcan comes with a 2” thick ceramic fiber board insert that fits into a recess at the top of the walls. Cut a hole in the center of the fiber board to match the top of a crucible. The fiber board holds heat inside the kiln when you open the lid. The Vulcan is 13 ½” wide x 18” deep. The fiber board in place reduces the firing chamber to 15” deep.
Program the digital controller for the exact consistency of glass melt that you desire. The hinged lid floats and has a lock-in lid support, which you can remove if you prefer to use the lid chain. You can also use the kiln for pottery or glass fusing. Comes with a one year warranty and heavy duty stand.
Furniture: Order the C10-R 10” round shelf and the correct 1 ½” wide posts to support your crucibles.
