About the choices you'll need to make:
|Voltage & Phase||The 614 is only available as a 115 volt kiln.|
The 614 is only available with 3" thick firebrick therefore selecting firebrick thickness doesn't show as an option.
|Controller||The standard electronic/digital Kiln Master controller (identified as KM series kilns) is now a standard of the industry. If you're an old-school firing style potter and really want a kiln sitter version kiln, they are still available and we can certainly order one for you - just contact us personally. The newer touchscreen version of the digital controller (identified as KMT series kilns) is about $300 more that the KM controller and is perfect for people comfortable with smartphone apps.|
|Vent||A downdraft vent (around $550-ish), jointly patented by Skutt and Orton, removes harmful fumes directly from your kiln. It also improves firing quality. If you don't have a vent on your kiln, you'll have to babysit your kiln. When you start up your kiln, you'll want your lid propped open an inch or so (we've used a spare kiln post laying down across the opening) and your peep hole plugs out. Then around 1000°F or so, you'll close the lid and plug the peep holes. If you have a vent, you'll close the kiln lid once you've finished loading it and put the peep hole plugs in and it stays that way through the entire firing. The VentLink (a little more than $100) lets your controller take control of turning the vent on and shutting it off at the appropriate for your firing. VentLink is available for either the KM or KMT kilns. A dual intake kit would be appropriate for anyone who wants to use 1 vent for 2 kilns. It's also available separately if you need some different configuration.|
|Rolling Stand||The 614 does not have a rolling stand option.|
|Furniture Kit||Only the manufacturer's furniture kit is available for this kiln or you can order individual shelves and posts.|
