Thanks to efforts of various members, we have a kiln!

Make

It is apparently a Gallenkamp Muffle Furnace exact type: unknown.

Please be careful hacking this as there may be asbestos inside of it. The asbestos should be internal (i.e. only a risk if you open up the back etc) but please be careful and wear a mask (asbestos safe) until confirmed one way or another.

Status

Not to be touched or used until asbestos status has been determined. Jonty is checking this out.

Update: Not sure if Jonty has given his ok or not. At any rate, the kiln has been used several times now. The door is a bit broken, it will still insulate enough to get hot, but it is hard to open and close. I attempted to cement it back together with fire cement, but the bricks really need to be taken off and replaced with new ones. Getting them off seems difficult! - Luke

Instructions

Plug it in, jam a stick in the back to hold the valve open, put stuff inside.
