TNF-1613 8-Sided Ceramics & Pottery Kiln
Uses: China Painting Crystalline Glazes Decals Dolls Fast Firings Low-Fire Ceramics Porcelain and Stoneware
The TnF1613 3" wall kiln (PN8661211) is designed for porcelain, so it easily fires ceramics, china paint, decals and gold. The size is ideal for teachers of china paint or dolls. The 8-sided, 16 ½” wide and 13 ¼” deep interior is as tall as standard 7-sided kilns. The TnF16133 kiln is 43% larger than the 66-3 series, yet costs only a few dollars more.
The TnF16133 plugs into a 30 amp, 240 volt outlet. It uses 6400 watts of power, more watts per cubic foot than conventional kilns. The extra wattage helps compensate for aging elements or low voltage. This extra power is ample for cone 10 and, if desired, rapid heating. Elements last longer, because the extra wattage and thicker 3" firebricks help the elements reach porcelain temperatures without strain.

The Furniture Kit
