Paragon Kiln TnF-82-3
The digital automatic TnF-82-3 Paragon kiln
is large enough for most ceramic projects. Figured at cost per cubic
foot, it is among our lowest priced hobby kilns. It uses the same
circuit size as most of our studio kilns. Upgrade to a larger kiln
later without having to install a new circuit.
This kiln now features the easy-access drop
down switch box. Remove two screws, and the box, hinged at the bottom,
opens forward for easy maintenance. The kiln features a top row of 2”
high blank wall bricks. Since the brick is without element grooves, it
is less susceptible to damage during loading than a grooved brick.
The TnF-82-3 is made of 3” thick firebrick in
the lid, walls and bottom. It is designed for porcelain, stoneware,
low-fire ceramics, china paint, decals and gold.

The Optional Furniture Kit (not included)
The furniture kit consists of carefully
selected fireclay shelves and posts for this particular model. When
estimating the price of the kiln, include the cost of furniture. The
furniture allows you to stack multiple layers of ware. Without it, you
could fire only the ware that would fit on the kiln bottom.
