Skutt GP706


The GP706 was quite possibly the first commercially available Glass Fusing kiln available on the market. Inspired by genius Bullseye Glass co-founder, Boyce Lundstrum, the GP706 became a staple among the early pioneers of glass fusing.

Analog Pyrometer
The GP706 comes with an analogl pyrometer that reads the temperature of the kiln chamber in degrees Fahrenheit. Since it is an analog pyrometer (as opposed to digital)it does not require batteries and can be mounted right to the kiln. The Pyrometer comes fully installed on the kiln.


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 HotStart Pro which has a programmable controller.

 

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.

 

Full Coverage Element Design

The element routing pattern in the lid perfectly matches the opening in the chamber with grooves spaces evenly across the lid. What does this mean? It means extremely even heating across your glass, that’s what..

 

Great for Platters

This kiln will hold up to a 12 inch platter. Can you say dinner ware set? It’s 6 inch depth even allows you to use up to 4″ deep slump molds.
