Paragon F-120 Lamp Working Kiln

Anneal large glass figurines in the digital F-120 lamp working kiln. Raise the spring-loaded vertical-drop door to insert a glass figurine with a punty rod. Lower the door. The punty rod extends outside the firing chamber through the smaller punty rod door. This allows the glass to anneal safely.

You can make figurines up to 5" tall in the F-120. Maintain the annealing temperature indefinitely with the Sentry Xpress 3-key controller. The Sentry Xpress 3-key controller is packed with features. It includes two modes: Single Speed and 8-segment Ramp-Hold.

Ease of operation will delight you. Never before has lamp work been so easy in this price range. Imagine the massive, award-winning figurines you will be able to make with this kiln. The F-series lid elements use a new element groove that eliminates element pins. The element coils are wider than the groove opening, so the elements stay in place without pins. The element is mounted in the top of the kiln for safety. There is no sidewall element to touch with a punty rod. With the element in the top, you can also fuse and slump glass. Imagine the glass you could sag, slump, and fuse with this kiln. Make small bowls, pendants, earrings, cufflinks, and even bracelets. Enjoy the glittering beauty of dichroics. This kiln will give you a haven of creative enjoyment that you will enjoy for many years.
