I have been waiting a long time to get one small test kiln for the firing of my test tiles, so I decided to build one. I have used soft jm26 bricks that can stand 1300ºc, and a 20x 30 cm refractory shelf.
During the first firing I realice that I must remove the piece arround the burner to let more air and a higher chimney to avoid a strong reduction
There are some photos line by line that maybe helpfull if you want to build one. Please, don’t hesitate to ask, I’ll be happy to explain you any detaill.
And some especial pieces I’ve carved. The piece arround the burner
And the pieces that help the flame in its way from the combustion chamber to the charge layer
