I recently purchase an old Norman kiln Model En-189 in a lot of Lost
wax casting stuff. It appears to be a very large enameling kiln(18"
by 18"by 9" no vent holes) or possibly was used for glass
annealing/fusing. The condition of this thirty year old kiln is a
little rough and may need a bit of therapy. A Google search yielded
Ganoksin articles(excepts from Enameling with Professionals By Lilyan
Bachman) posted on Orchid mentions that Ms Bachman refurbished a
Norman kiln for her own use. The email Link to MS Bachman a results
in a failure notice and to date I’ve been unable to find the Norman
Kiln Company and suspect that they are no longer in business. I would
be interested in any resources or you could direct me to
with regard to this piece of equipment ( Old manuals etcetera)? Any
advice on refurbishment would be appreciated.
Thanks in advance and I hope everyone has a fine time in Seattle at
