I currently have a 7 cube electric theoretically rated to ^10. It has
great difficulty getting to temp, and blows elements constantly, despite
frequent wire changes, etc.
I'm looking to upgrade both in size and ability. Anyone out there with
production experience going to ^10 in electric? It MUST be a single
phase; and I'm also looking for a good computer controller as I want to
start glass slumping as well.
Your help, as always, is greatly appreciated.

Paragon is introducing new cone 10 kilns: the PTF-24-3
and PTF-28-3. They have 2400 deg. firebricks,
controller, built-in safety fuses, UL/CUL listing, and
will easily reach cone 10.
If you're interested, please call 800-876-4328.

I have a Paragon TNF which was supposed to have been a cone 10 kiln. I
bought the extra-priced ^10 elements, or at least I ordered and paid for ^10
elements. Well it probably is a ^10 kiln now, after my having spent many
extra dollars on electricians, rewiring, better elements, thermostat,
repairing the computer board, replacing relays, etc. Also having ruined many
loads of pottery because the kiln didn't work properly from the factory.
In case you're wondering, I've had the kiln for two years and now, thanks to
the suggestions and help of Jonathan Kaplan and Chris and the guys at
Euclid's, and absolutely no thanks to the tech representatives or
administration at the Paragon manufactory, the kiln actually works!
Actually, it gets up to ^6 easily. I never cared about going
to ^10 to begin with, but this kiln wouldn't even make it to ^6. So, I can't
tell you what kind of kiln to buy (though Euclids might be a good place to
start looking), but I can certainly tell you what *not* to buy.
