Really excited to get fusing with my new kiln. Trying out some test tiles right now and can't wait to fuse my first project. Jen Ken has not disappointed me yet - this is my 2nd kiln from them. Took a week longer than promised but this was ordered during the time of COVID so I feel like they totally delivered on the time frame given delays that could have happened.
I just received my heat treat oven yesterday and got it unpacked. Everything looks great so far! I have not had a chance to plug it in and try it out as I’m waiting to hear back from Evenheat regarding changing out the plug to fit my outlet (easy change but want them to verify) and to make sure my 20 amp breaker will suffice (says it uses 15 amps max so should be fine). Oven itself looks great! There is a small gap between the door and rest of the oven on the hinge side that’s about a 1/16” wide and nice and flush on the latch side. Guessing it should be fine as they test them before shipping... Looking forward to heat treating some knives!
Ok, so heat treating in a forge was good and all but dang! Having complete control over temp is amazing! My even heat was built amazing solid too! Oh not to mention it’s extremely easy to use!!! Check out papa bear knives on IG or FB!!!
And soul ceramics has the best customer service and great communication!!!
I thank y’all very much!
I’m impressed by the high quality of the Even Heat LB18 Kiln. All break-in procedures and first heat treats have been easy. Look forward to years of use.
I love this oven, it's easy to use, it comes up to temp fast, extremely accurate, and looks great too.
