Skutt Scarab XL Optional secondary point restOptional Secondary Point Rest

The Optional Secondary Point Rests, another unique design of Marcel Braun, are generally ordered on just about every Scarab that goes out of here. Flameworkers love its ability to hold long handles, preventing their work from popping up off the floor. Its well thought out design allows you to move the rest to almost any position you want. It not only moves in and out but also moves up and down. The scalloped edge ensures that your rods will stay in place. Do Not Forget To Order This Upgrade.

Skutt Glass Kiln Controller

The Controller

  • The software for the COE Controller was developed by Flameworker Marcel Braun to fit the specific needs of the Boro Flameworker.
  • It can be easy as pressing Go to start working and Go twice to anneal your piece and call it a night.
  • The Controller is programmed to heat to 1100 F but you can set it for whatever temperature you want.
  • You can choose between the 3 preset Annealing programs or creat your own.
  • Marcel knows how important to know how long your piece is at he set point temperature. That is why he programmed a feature in the controller that tells you exactly that amount of time. If you dip below that temperature it waits until it is back to set point and restarts the clock.
  • It also includes built in striking and repair programs.

  • Skutt Scarab Flameworking kiln point restsPrimary Point Rests

  • The Primary Point rests are designed to slide up and down to support your rods and tubes. If your handles are extremely long we would suggest adding the Optional Secondary Point Rest which extends further out from the kiln and is fully adjustable up and down.

    When you are ready to anneal you slide all 3 point rests up tight against the doggie doors to seal off the chamber.

    The point rests are constructed of solid brick and stainless steel for maximum life. To operate them simply loosen the the knob, slide the rest to the position desired and tighten the knob. It was specifically designed to be a one hand operation so you can hold your glass with the other hand.

  • The “Doggie” Doors

    Skutt Scarab Kiln DoorsThe Doggie Doors (sometimes referred to as bead doors) are the brainchild of master flameworker Marcel Braun. They are constructed using a channeled stainless steel frame which holds a section of soft fiberboard. When you close the door it rests gently on your glass handles, sealing in the heat without scratching the glass. If they ever wear out you can replace them easily and inexpensively. The doors are counterbalanced to stay open on there own with weighted wood handles that stay cool to the touch.

    One of the most valued design elements of the Scarab and Scarab XL kilns is the introduction of the Center Door. The center door allows you to use a single larger diameter tube or rod without affecting the tight seal on the other rods. Without it the larger diameter tube would hold the doggie door up higher, allowing unnecessary heat to escape…Brilliant!
