Old trinkit kiln plug?


#1

I just inherited an old trinkit kiln, its kinda dirty with some
enamel spills on the ceramic element there is some cloth around the
ceramic element, how do I clean this? the plug is an old plug from
the 60’s not polarized, like the old toaster plug, is there a new and
better way to plug this thing in, do they still make this kiln? I
saw a post where Marianne Hunter asked if there were new elements
for this studio Kiln? any info would be helpful, It does heat up.

Thanks for letting me play,
Vicki

Vicki,

you can use a thin coat of kiln wash on the surface of your trinkit
kiln. I still use the old plug. I am pretty sure this trinkit kiln
is not in production any longer, but you can still get the same type.
Thompson enamel sells a small one and I have a slightly larger
variety called a table top metal enameling kiln I got from a clay
kiln manufacturer. Let me know if you are interested in that size
and I will locate the manufacturer and address for you.
