Kilncare Kiln - Hobbyfuser Drop Out  glass kiln with digital programmer - Exclusive to Warm Glass UK. FREE UK Shipping. Internal Dimensions: 41.5cm x 41.5cm x 27.5cm (LxWxH)  

We're excited to introduce the new Kilncare Hobbyfuser Drop Out Kiln, exclusive to Warm Glass UK.  The Kilncare Hobbyfuser Drop Out kiln has been designed in conjunction with Warm Glass UK and is an ideal kiln for making 'drop-outs'.  This kiln has exactly the same build and high attention to detail as the hugely popular Kilncare Hobbyfuser 3 but has been designed in such a way that enables you to remove a level of bricks from the base to make the kiln 75mm deeper.  This gives you the flexibility to use the Hobbyfuser Drop Out kiln in the same way that you would the Hobbyfuser 3 for glass fusing, glass slumping and casting with incredible efficiency, but also to make it deeper to master the art of fused glass 'drop-outs'.  

This kiln also has the added benefit of a drop out viewing hole with door, so you can easily inspect your drop-out visually during firing without opening the lid.

Manufactured in the UK, the solid build and high attention to detail in the design makes it one of the best and biggest new plug-in kilns on the market. Free 3 year manufacturer's warranty.  This is the largest plug-in kiln we sell. 

**A free gift of a Coaster Making Kit will also be sent to you when you order this kiln**

(Kit will be sent separately from the kiln)

We provide full technical support for as long as you need it, as well as firing schedules.

Drop Outs 

Elements:

Kiln Elements

This Kilncare kiln is equipped with high performance, hard-wearing infra-red quartz elements and well-designed insulation.  The elements are located in the lid for even heating; this also makes them easy to replace if required.  The elements are switched off when the lid is opened by an automatic safety switch.

Lid:

The lid is made from stainless steel: powder coated and oven baked.  It is lined out with press cut, non-ceramic fibre.  This eliminates the risk of brick dust particles dropping from the lid, making for a very clean firing environment. The lid construction enables the Hobbyfuser Drop Out to retain the heat when needed but still release heat rapidly during the all-important cool-down period.

The lifting and closing of the lid is a single finger operation thanks to a pair of specifically manufactured and designed Stainless Steel coil springs at the rear of the kiln.  There are also two handles for left or right hand lifting and a new design of catch to hold the lid closed.

In the centre of the lid is a vent hole which comes with a matching plug. This is positioned to the rear of the chamber to avoid particle contamination on the glass.

Base: 

The base section of the chamber is made from refractory brick and made in such a way that the top layer of bricks can be removed to make the kiln 75mm deeper.  The bricks can be easily replaced without the need for cement etc. 

There is a drop out viewing hole with door, allowing you to inspect your drop-outs during firing without opening the lid.
  
Controller:

KCR2 Controller


The Kilncare Hobbyfuser Drop Out comes fitted with the new KCR2 controller. It has 9 fully adjustable programs, each with 9 segments.  Each segment consists of 1 x rate of climb, 1 x target temperature and 1 x dwell/hold.

  • Pre-set with 9 useful glass programs for fusing and slumping. All these programs can be altered to suit your own needs.

  • Displays the kiln temperature, whether the kiln is heating or cooling, the present segment number and whether the kiln is running.

  • Start delay feature.

  • Segments can be skipped during firing if required.

  • Pause feature the enables the user to "freeze" the temperature at any given time during the process.

  • Shows how much electricity has been used during the present/last firing

  • Safety features such as broken thermocouple detection and various kiln fault alarms.

The KCR2 gets its data from an ultra-fast response, stainless steel thermocouple.  This ensures that there is no lag between the kiln temperature and the KCR2s control, meaning you get reliable results every time. The KCR2 comes with a stand which to sit at a comfortable angle on a bench to or to be fixed to the wall or kiln stand.

Stand (Optional):

Kiln stand

Available with or without castors, the optional stand has two shelves, one for the kiln to sit on and one for your own use. It raises the kiln by 650mm to a comfortable working height.  It is made of steel and is powder coated in blue to match the kiln.  The stand is supplied ready for assembly.

Had my kiln for a year now. When I purchased it I was not far off from being a complete novice in glass work. This kiln is easy to use and to programme your own schedules in. I bought the deeper version knowing that I would be progressing to drop outs. It is a good size for a hobbyist. Love this kiln.
