I used West Coast kilns throughout grad school, along
with a couple of older Alpines. The 24 cf performed
well, and held up to student abuse, too. Sometimes the
school bought them "whole", sometimes they got the parts
and we built them. In either case it did not take long to
figure out the best way to fire them evenly. They varied
a bit, but I found the 24 cf to be the smoothest and easiest
to fire -we had some much larger ones, too.
