I have the Olympic square 189GFETLC – which can be opened from the top or clamshell. It’s 18x18x9. When I bought it I thought “I’ll never need a bigger kiln” – now on almost a daily basis I find myself wishing I had a bigger kiln! Not so much to fire a piece bigger than 18” – but to get more in at once! I load from the top and via the clamshell equally. I’d tell you to get as big of a kiln as your space (and wallet) can take.
I have a Bartlett 1000 controller with a separate lid controller – I set it to high and have never had to watch it.
Thanks for the advice. So am now feeling better about going for an Olympic Kiln but also I do agree with your advice about getting biggest kiln I can get so the 18″ one does sound good for me and Still comes in cheaper that the Hobbyfuser 3
It appears that the UK spec one only comes as Clamshell or Slider. So Clamshell it will probably be.
Creative Glass Guild (the UK suppliers) supply it with the RTC-1000 controller and a Shelf/Furniture set as well including Kiln Wash (Not sure if this is something from CGG or from Olypmic)
Again thanks for your excellent advice
