    question if anyone knows

    alright, if any of you know anything about a Kiln, what type of bricks are inside there?

    second question, anyone know what type of plastics are used inbetween the windshields?

    third anyone know how to make a vaccum chamber?

    I ask this, cus I'm tired of searching for someone to make custom glass for me so will try to make one myself sometime in May

    I am assuming Kiln bricks. Not cheep

    PVC plastic is the material used between the glass on modern day cars

    You are in for a major undertaking to take on a project like this

    Re: question if anyone knows

    Are you seriously considering building a kiln to bend glass? You can use fire-brick, its not to expensive. What is your fuel source going to be? How will you regulate the heat for the cool-down on the glass (it must cool at the exact rate accross the surface or it will shatter when it cools to the ambient temp)? How big are you going to make it? Why dont you just call Autotemp.com?
    Without talent experience is worthless

    Re: question if anyone knows

    Yes I'm seriously considering building a kiln. it's electric, plus dont really want a gas one might burn down the shop lol.

    Max. Temperature 1500F 815C
    Amps 14
    Phase 1
    Watts 1700
    Nema 5-15R
    Breaker Size 20
    Circuit Wire Size 12 gauge

    Control Type Sentry Digital 3-key Glass Control

    Voltage 240

    make it the same size as a queen bed and 2 1/2 feet high. purchase the controllers and heating elements from Paragon, still gotta source out the brick. Just doing the research for now

    Going through a glass company will require me to purchase 10 or more at a time and waiting for it to be made can take months. I guess I'll rather make one at a time when needed than buy bulk and having it sit around. and with all these other plugs im building I need rapid prototyping for glass, only thing left to produce inhouse to bring cost down for everyone
