You can make figurines up to 12” tall in the Paragon F130 kiln. Anneal large glass beads and marbles. Raise the spring-loaded vertical-drop door to insert a glass figurine with a punty rod. Lower the door. The punty rod will extend outside the firing chamber through the smaller punty rod door. This allows even large glass pieces to anneal safely.

 

New thicker firebricks

The firebricks in the roof, walls, door, and bottom are 3” thick. This is 20% more insulation than the standard 2 1/2” firebricks in the walls and bottom of our earlier F-130 kilns. The extra insulation enables the F-130 to maintain a temperature hold with greater ease.

 

Solid State Relays

The F130 has solid-state relays that are mounted to aluminum heat sinks. SSR's last far longer than standard mechanical relays and offer better temperature control during holds. SSR's also have no moving parts to wear out. You will also notice is that SSR's are silent. The only sound you will hear just the reassuring hum of the heating elements.



Sidewall heating elements

Sidewall heat is now standard in the Paragon F130 kiln. The element heats from the sides and back of the kiln in dropped, recessed wall grooves. We recommend that you order the optional safety door switch, which turns off the element when the door is raised. (The temperature controller will continue to operate when the safety switch turns off the elements.)

If you prefer an element in the top instead of the walls, please specify when you place your order. The price of the F-130 is the same whether the element is in the walls or the top. Top elements are mounted in deluxe pinless element grooves. For an extra fee, you can also order top and sidewall elements in the same kiln.

 

Deluxe door gaskets

Because of a gap under the small punty rod door, you can usually close the door all the way even when mandrels extend past the firing chamber. This helps to retain the heat in the kiln. Powerful, rare-earth magnets hold the punty rod door in the open and closed positions. To further retain heat, the 4” x 8” punty rod door is 2” thick and includes two woven, flexible high-temperature gaskets.

 

Slide-out mandrel holder

Paragon has added an adjustable mandrel holder to the front of the kiln. Adjust it horizontally and vertically without tools. Position the heavy-duty welded mandrel holder from 4 1/2” to 13” in front of the main section of the kiln floor. (Note: The firebrick extension on the front of the kiln extends 3” beyond the front edge of the kiln floor.) Then tighten the mandrel holder with the thumbscrews on each side of the kiln. The holder slides inside steel tubes ingeniously mounted in the base of the kiln. The stainless steel mandrel rest, which includes 7 slots, can also be adjusted vertically.

 

Sloped control panel

The control panel is angled for easy viewing and operation of the digital controller. Program the kiln from a comfortable position. The controller, pilot light, and switch are mounted on a brushed stainless steel plate. Gain easy access to the electrical components by removing the front panel.

 

Convenient digital temperature controller

Maintain the annealing temperature indefinitely with the Genesis Mini Touch Screen Controller. The controller is packed with features. It includes two firing modes: Single Speed and 32-segment Ramp-Hold. Single Speed mode is especially easy and quick to learn. The thermocouple, which senses the temperature, is protected with a high-nickel stainless steel sheath for a long, trouble-free life.

 

Interested in Making Your Own Metal Parts and Pieces?

What is Lost Wax Casting? It is the process of making or carving a shape in wax, then making a mold of the wax shape, and then casting that shape into metal from the mold. The mold is a negative image of the wax. The wax is melted out of the mold through hollow channels called sprues. Lost wax burnout is the process of preparing a casting mold for the melted metal that will be poured into it.

Stainless Steel Wax Trays

If you want to do Lost Wax Casting, you'll need a stainless steel wax tray. Here's the one you'll need for this kiln; a Stainless Steel Wax Tray, 9″ X 8.5.″ This Stainless Steel Wax Tray system will fit well in your kiln and allow you to do lots of wax burnout.

Place your molds on the removable expanded metal top. The wax will drip from the molds into the tray underneath. Then remove the wax tray before the kiln gets hotter than 300°F / 148°C. Note: Burning wax inside a kiln can damage the firebricks. Check out this 9 x 8.5" Stainless Steel Wax Tray out to help you in your projects. Here's the link.
