A metalworking kiln with various applications in heat-treating, light forging or casting of metals

No training requirement, but please seek advice from other metalshop users if you are unfamiliar with its use

This one is the larger of hackspace's two kilns so can heat bigger workpieces, but doesn't have as high a maximum temperature as the QMUL kiln

It also has a much simpler control system compared to the QMUL

Not suitable for ceramics
