If you've been looking for a tall clamshell kiln, the compact Olympic Square 146GFETLC is the one for you. You are able to run this kiln on regular household power. Wow, that's a bonus! The clamshell style kiln is perfect for working directly on the kiln shelf when you are doing powder wafers, frit painting, or working with casting rings.
This kiln can also be latched at the bottom to allow for top loading when you need to do that. If you are a renter, or if you live in a really old home that can't be upgraded, this kiln will allow you to work on larger projects by just plugging it in anywhere. The stand is nice and tall, so you won't have to bend over to load it.
Why Upgrade from Mechanical Relays to Solid-State Relays?
Mechanical Relays, which come standard on most kilns have internal moving parts which over time wear out and need to be replaced. Kiln manufacturers recommend you replace your mechanical relays approximately every 2 years. Solid-state relays have no moving parts and last far longer than standard mechanical relays and offer far better temperature control during hold times. Since solid-state relays also have no moving parts to wear out, they NEVER need to be replaced. You will notice that solid-state relays are silent. The only sound you will hear is just the reassuring hum of the heating elements. So, this factory upgrade saves you potential down time from having to wait for new relays to arrive, potential over-fires from relays sticking in the closed position, potential aggravation from having to learn how to remove and replace the mechanical relays yourself. We think this upgrade is well worth the cost and will save you time and aggravation over the life of your kiln.
