Time to start on a kiln
« on: March 24, 2019, 08:52:02 AM »
I was offered aluminum doors from a large kiln. Plan to go haul them home after church an dinner today. They are 6' x 18' tall, I think 6 of them. Plan to make a small solar kiln.  The doors look to be not well insulated, so thinking of using  under floor joists. And line walls inside with them. Ideas? Good bad or other wise? Thanks

so ty, you will not use them as doors, but for sheet material to cover over frame construction, right? some pics might help, I assume they have a framework for structure,  right?  what size kiln?  Is it patterned after the VT kilns.  great material and fits well with reduce reuse recycle.  If the frame is deep, could you use spray foam insulation?

Got them home on the trailer. There are 12-4' wide and 8-2'wide they are all 18' tall, 2 of the 4' have man doors in them. They are 2" aluminum angle frames with aluminum skin in and out with 1/2 fiberglass insulation inside. I was going to tear one down and use the  skin under the floor joists. Still up in the air on plans, the price was good so home they came. The kiln must have been 64' wide or close. If nothing else I have a lot of aluminum scrap. I could double up and add insulation between the panels? Was only going 14' for 12' lumber, maybe I should do 18'?

Need some pics. Without pictures, they don't exist.   :D

Good luck with your kiln.

Here goes something I hope.... That was not bad, first time with photos for me. The angles on top are aluminum also, not sure where they were used. The other metal on top are some freebies to.
