Kiln lifts out of the way for hassle-free loadng
The kiln lifts up and out of the way so you can assemble glass pieces inside the kiln directly onto a shelf . Add stringersand frit to delicate designs . When the kiln is full,lower the kiln over the shelf . Imagine how easy that is .
The kiln is easy to open because of three counter-weight springs mounted under the kiln . The kiln base extends 4 in the back to support the weight of the kiln when in the open position . The base comes with mar-proof rubber feet .
The CS-16D is dual-opening: You can open the kiln by lifting the kiln body or by lifting only the lid . Lift the kiln body out of the way to assemble glass directly on the shelf; open the lid to loadglass over a slumping mold .
The CS-16D can be opened by lifting the kiln body or the kiln lid,but never both at the same time . The kiln is equipped with safety latches on the side . The gravity-operated top latch holds the lid closed; the lever-operated bottom latch holds the kiln body closed .
Protective steel lid cover
The top of the lid is protected with a painted sheetmetal cover . The sheetmetal is bent to cover the sides of the lid and then welded at the corners . You will be amazed at the sturdy construction that has made Paragon kilns renowned among glass fusers . The self-adjusting lid floats at fusing temperatures .
