Someone gave me an old kiln. She doesn’t know if it works any more.
She said it’s been sitting, unused, in her garage for maybe 20 years
and it was maybe 20-30 years old when someone gave it to her. It
worked when she got it.
I am wondering if it is safe for me to plug it in and try. It is an
Allcraft Kiln. The metal label on it says: Allcraft Tool & Supply
Co., 15 W 45th Street, New York 36, NY.
Volts = 110
Phase = 1
Model = 88
Kilo = 1.3
Amp = 12
It has an old style electric cord and plug - like what I remember
from the 50’s - - fabric covered black cord, only 2 prongs on plug,
not polarized. Inside, the electric coils look intact but the bottom
row has popped out from the wall in one corner and it won’t stay
inside the channel when I try to stuff it back in. Nothing looks
frayed or broken though.
Does anyone know anything about this kiln model? Should I chance
plugging it in? What might happen? (I don’t want to get electrocuted
