Extra Thermocouple (unless Type S)
The Skutt Scarab glass kilns were designed by renowned Flameworker, Marcel Braun specifically for working with Borosilicate Glass. The controller has simple to
use built in programs for Annealing, Striking and Repairing or you can design
The doors on this flameworking kiln are engineered for smooth operation and a perfect fit. The
fan cooled solid state relays are reliable, quiet and easy to access with the
unique slide out chassis. Marcels custom designed Secondary point rest is now
standard on all Scarab Models. The secondary point rest slides in and out and up
and down to accommodate just about any length and diameter of tubes and rods.
Custom rolling stands are also available for all Skutt Scarab glass kiln models except the Micro.
- 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 for the Skutt Scarab glass kiln or create your own.
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 your flameworking kiln 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
Primary 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.
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
The “Doggie” Doors
The 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
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!
