DRUM RAKU KILN.£395
from an Upcycled Oil Drum, this Raku Kiln is double lined with 2" (50mm) of the safe `S` type ceramic fibre. (2 X 25mm) It comes ready to use and includes a 48mm PropaneTorch
Burner, complete with regulator & hose, flame intensity adjustment, and spanners. This burner does not have a flame cut out sensor. You are free to buy your own burner should you prefer, a
reductiuon will be made if you choose to do this.
Fibreboard 14.5" Kiln Shelf and supporting fire bricks, damper pad and flame deflector. The lid fibre is secured with ceramic buttons & nichrome wire. Plus there is a side inlet for a
thermocouple, if you want to use one (thermo not included).
Guidance notes are provided, plus my own
Raku Glaze Recipe which is tried and tested. The lid and main chamber have carry handles to make moving the kiln that little bit easier. Although it is not heavy, weighing a total of 23kg, about the
same as 2 bags of clay, you can use this kiln on your own, the lid being very easy to lift off at the right moment. I have been a professional potter for 43 years, & have fired Raku now for over
25 years. I run very popular Raku Days at my home studio. This design of kiln is well proven, and provides an affordable, portable option to other Raku kiln providers. You can also Biscuit fire with
this kiln. I offer full support if you have a problem or are unsure what to do, simply phone or email me for assistance, I am quite happy to help. Details will be given on
If you collect I will talk you through
Size external: 66cm High x 60cm Wide.
Internal : 40cm High x 46cm Wide Thats inside 16"H x 18"W, giving a pot placing area of approx 2.5 cu.ft. Available for
collection, but I can send it UK Mainland with a recognised carrier for £45 which could be less than the petrol to collect ! Please contact me for further details. I accept card payments over
the phone or on collection. Bank transfer payments are now popular, details provided.
I do not expect payment until the kiln is collected, or ready to
send. The kiln in the picture will not be the one you buy, but I make them all to the same specification and so are all very much the same. Please note these are made from upcycled oil drums, and so
do have ocassional dinks and dents, which do not affect functionality. The kiln shelf is made from Fibreboard. I have run extensive trials with this board and found it to be far less vunerable to
cracking than conventional shelves. This I believe is a new innovation, meaning the shelf life is greatly increased and less vunerable to breakage. In trials I fired the test shelf over 50 times
