If you are a glassblower, slumper, fuser, beadmaker, caster, etc., we can help you get up and going. If you don't have our burner and element catalog, please e-mail us firstname.lastname@example.org. We will be happy to help you. If you are interested in learning more about kiln design and the art of electrifying your kiln, perhaps you would enjoy reading about how to build kilns in Dudley's classic text, A Glassblower's Companion. Five chapters are devoted to discussing and building annealers of all sizes, from the very small to the very large. Dudley has helped a good many of these projects get off the ground.
A word to our potter friends seeking replacement elements for your kilns: If you have a Scutt or an Alpine or some other name-brand kiln, I suggest you contact the manufacturer directly or go through a dealer such as JOHN @ SHEFFIELD POTTERY, RT 7 BOX 399, SHEFFIELD, MA. 01257 phone (413) 229-7700. It is really difficult (well near impossible) to replicate an element when all we have for evidence is a small section of broken coils.
