I am posting this for my friend and colleague Bill Riker in East Providence, Rhode Island.

For sale is a top-loading 'Bell' style kiln for large format fusing, slumping and casting.

3 phase with a SCR and mercury relay switch.
480 volts of AC power
60" tall total (bottom 42", top/cover 18")
60" deep
110" wide
Counterweight components 87" tall (Electric winch)

All reasonable offers considered. Asking $1500. Please contact Cat Riker on (401) 339-9595 or email at catriker (at) gmail (dot) com or post here and I will forward on any inquiries.

Please apologize for the images borrowed from it's sister kiln. This kiln is exactly the same only does not include any kiln furniture or molds. The 'borrowed' images show the lifting mechanism installed whereas Bill's kiln is not currently set up and has been in storage for a number of years. I will upload more images of Bill's kiln in further comments as there is a 5 image limit.

All 'reasonable' offers considered! It's virtually impossible for us to ship it but if you know anyone who may be interested... Peter you could fly over, crate it and ship it back to Australia! You're welcome to use our tools and stay at my house : )

I've already got a couple that size that I'm not using enough of at the moment, don't think I could justify another.
But that really is the sale of the century. Hope it finds a good home.

Final pictures of Bill's kiln where it is currently in storage. Last 2 pictures show lid lifting mechanism with the electric winch.

Not that it matters a bit.

I had it's sister (or brother) (in fact those are my photos in top post) and the people I gave it to are just about to have it up and running somewhere in South Jersey near Glassboro.

Just an interesting tidbit.

I could cut it in half and it would still be big.

you can make a lot of money with that oven. Fused counter tops are a hot item.

It was originally set up for tiles- 2 powered kilns with an unpowered "annealer" in between.

Hi Guy, thanks for letting us borrow your images! At least it shows the kiln set up.

Anyway, looks like there is an offer on the table now... : )
