DRUM RAKU KILN.£395
Made 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 reduction will be made if you choose to do this.
A 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).
48mm Torch Burner . Angled to direct flame onto deflector.

Lid of kiln, underside fibre held in place with ceramic buttons.
My own Fibre Board Shelf was fired 79 times before finally giving up !!
I turned it over every so often to reduce warpage. Both sides were batwashed.
Hand Forged Raku Tongs. 10mm Steel x 1M Long, Jaws open to a maximum 21cm. Beautifully made by a local blacksmith, these tongs have the `feel` that you need when pulling hot pots from your kiln. The Jaw ends have flat `v` shaped teeth to minimise any tong marks on the glaze. The 1M length means that your safety is not compromised. There are cheaper tongs about, but they tend to have a 4mm pop riveted pivot point, which through experience fails after a while. These tongs have a 10mm forged steel pivot, much stronger, are not made in China and will last a lifetime.
£40 a pair, and if you are not able to collect I can post them for £6.50
