First I would like to thank all those who advised me to get a ConeArt
Kiln and the folks there who patiently answered all of my questions thus
Now that my shiny new kiln is sitting in my studio, what are your
recommendations for the electrician setting it up. He has no experience
my kiln is 240 volts, 28 amps, 6.7 kw, 1 phase, ^10.
My kiln is three feet from anything. the kiln shed is fairly large, but
has only one wall and has some exposure to the weather. I have a
concrete floor that I hose down often, so things are pretty wet all
around. The air here is really damp. Is that going to kill my kiln?
Copper wire, not aluminum, right? what size or whatever?
separate breaker box?
ground fault circuit interrupters?
direct wired or plug?
separate grounding at the second breaker?
What about the outlet to the wheel and heat gun? two separate? anything
I/he should know?
Thank you very much,

if your electrician doesn't know the anwers to all of the above,,, or
can't handle it....... don't use him.....
i'm very serious about this..... this is not brain surgery.......
your kiln is just an electric appliance ,,,, just like an air conditioner
or other commercial machinery... a piece of cake for any electrition to
creating, exploring, making, experiencing
