The inner door surface is recessed for a good fit. The door opens easily yet remains securely closed with the spring latch. The door is mounted on a heavy duty hinge shaft. As you can see, the sturdy TnF-J-11 is built for long life.
The TnF-J-11 comes with a vent hole and ceramic vent hole plug in the top. Vent lost wax casting and silver clay fillers such as cork clay. The Sentry TnF controller, located in the slotted base, stays cool for long life. Since the controls are mounted in the base, the TnF-J-11 takes up less tabletop space than kilns that have a side-mounted switch box. No extra stand is needed. The kiln includes a power switch on the front panel. The element uses Paragon’s heat-dissipating connectors, which have been perfected over many years in Paragon kilns.
The TnF-J-11 is available with an optional wax tray for lost wax casting.
If you have never used a digital controller, you will be amazed at the convenience of digital firing. The TnF-J-11’s Sentrycontroller continually monitors the firing so you can spend your time productively without closely watching the kiln. (Please remember, however, to check the kiln during firing and to monitor it near the expected shutoff time.) The sealed touch pad keeps out dust and is easy to wipe clean.
The controller has powerful features that you will enjoy using. Yet we have also worked hard to make the controller user-friendly.
