I might be interested in one, or both, items.

What're you asking?

Thanks, James.

I'm 99.9% sure I'll take the crucible (if it's still available, and the price is right). The panel would be nice to have, but I won't have a use for it in the near future. Depends on how much.

Thanks you all for your interest. Had I known I would have offered some additional information prior to listing, my apologies.

I will try to answer all the questions that were asked
First Pricing, The Pot was around $165 new (still new just aged) I would take $85 plus shipping.
The Eclipse unit was around $1600 to $1700 new (they are a couple of K new might have additional features?). I would like to get $750 +shipping
These are my recollections as I remember. I got 3 years of use then went to an electric furnace
It was a 110v unit connected to a 120# invested pot furnace single Gibberson (?) burner. The unit had a flame sensor (UV sensor) loosely embedded near the crown (not included), connected to a gas line solenoid. There was a purge function and delay (5 seconds) as the furnace was being lit. So with any glitch in power the unit would try a relight after the purge. I had a separate shut off if there was a complete power failure after 10 seconds not on the eclipse. If I remember there was a positive pressure sensor also on airflow in the event of a blower malfunction. Flame sensor, purge in progress, and burner on indicators. Can be upgraded with additional functions, not my area of expertise. I have attached the schematic for the set up, also have the manual. Nice simple unit, thanks for your interest, Paul.
