Just thought I would post with information about our current glass kiln, the Paragon Fusion 14. Believe me, I am not trying to push this kiln or sell or promote in any way. This is just so you can see what we are using for all our glass fusing and slumping.
So far, no real issues with the kiln, but I suspect that having the bead door and peep hole do sap a bit of heat from the kiln and it gets to processing target temp a little slow. Unless you really need the bead door I would certainly suggest you don’t have it installed. The peep hole is really a necessity.
The kiln has been easy to program, but I hope to talk more about this later.
