Firebox 8 - Fast!

The FireBox 8 is a little bullet. When you are doing demonstrations and working with smaller pieces you can get away with firing fast. This thing will reach fusing temperatures in 20 minutes.

 

Features:


Digital Pyrometer

The FireBox 8 comes with a digital pyrometer that reads the temperature of the kiln chamber in degrees Fahrenheit. If you would like a pyrometer that reads in Celsius you will need to let your distributor know at the time of the order. The Pyrometer comes with a thermocouple with wire, thermocouple mounting flange, a pyrometer mounting bracket (that can be mounted to the wall or set on any flat surface) and it even comes with handy little case to store the pyrometer.

The temperature rate (speed at which the kiln heats up) is controlled by the infinite switch on the kiln. It will take a while to learn the switch settings that create the rate increases you need. It absolutely imperative that you monitor the kiln at all times. When the kiln reaches the temperature you are aiming for you can turn the switch off or you can control the rate of cooling also by using the switch. if all this is too much for you you may want to upgrade to the FireBox 8×4 which has a programmable controller.

 

Body lifts Off Base

Sometimes when you are assembling a piece you do not want to risk moving it. The FireBox 8 was purposely constructed so the body of the kiln can be easily removed simply by undoing a buckle. This allows you to assemble your piece right on the shelf as it sits in the kiln and then place the body of the kiln back over it. Voila! No moving!

 

Plugs Into Household Voltage

Nothing against electricians, but who really enjoys paying to have their house rewired. With the FireBox 14 you take it out of the box, plug it into any spare 120V outlet you have in the house and you are ready to start fusing. Okay, it does need to be a grounded outlet.

 

Lid Opens Over 90 Degrees

Why is this important you ask? We are glad you did. When the lid can open past 90 degrees it will not be in your way when you go to load your shelf. That’s it!
