Gas kiln in the garage? Just the sound of it makes me hurt. Isn't there =
a better location? I wouldn't even think a gas company would want to =
risk connecting a kiln up if there were any chance of them being held =
liable. In a city, codes would turn you down in a nano-second. Insurance =
company? Looking for a reason to turn you down on a claim? I doubt you =
could get an insurance company to even write a policy on what you are =
thinking. It wouldn't matter if you sold biscuits out of that kiln, you =
wouldn't get let alone afford coverage. Forget it! In this day and time =
if anything were to happen you would be S.O.L. Try and explain the =
temperature of the exhaust gasses as they go up the chimney. I have a =
gas kiln OUTSIDE, used to have a hood and chimney until it rusted out in =
less than a year. I know, if you want to spend the money, anything is =
possible. I just wouldn't what my life and the life of loved ones to be =
in jeopardy.
