[Looking4] Rey therminder kiln manual


#1

I have just inherited a jewelry kiln that I plan to use for small
glass projects. It is a Rey Programmed Therminder model 241 serial
248531 and I can find no on line about how to use it. On
the kiln itself there is an infinity switch, okay simple enough. The
controller is another story. There are dials, switches and in spite
of my willingness to noodle around with it for a few days I am
unable to figure it out without some guidance. If anyone has some
insight as to how this thing works or where to look for an answer to
this quest I would be most grateful.

Thank you.

Matthew,

There are dials, switches and in spite of my willingness to noodle
around with it for a few days I am unable to figure it out without
some guidance. If anyone has some insight as to how this thing
works or where to look for an answer to this quest I would be most
grateful. 

The Rey Programmed Therminder is a furnace controller sold by Swest
in the 1980s. It was specifically designed for the jewelry industry.
The programmed part is for burning out the wax. There were three
versions made, the Mark II is the most common. The infinite switch on
the kiln is set to “High” (should be a detent position) so it is on
all the time and controlled by the Therminder.

The only instruction manual is a one page brochure and instruction
sheet. If you send me a self-addressed-stamped envelope, I will send
you a copy of the instructions. We are the only factory service center
for the Therminders. Although it is old, repair service is still
available.
