In the foreground are the two homemade burners used for this kiln. (Detailed drawing enclosed.) This requires natural gas with 6 pounds of pressure. In making this type of burner a shaded pole blower is used requiring electricity at the site. If propane gas is used, 30 pounds of pressure is needed. Excellent propane burners are available from Pyronics, Inc. (See Materials list.)
