Skutt The FireBox 8 is available
FireBox 8 is the perfect small kiln for Glass Fusing, Precious Metal Clay,
Ceramics, Enameling, Knife Making...almost anything that you need to get hot.
Beginners to Advanced Artist will love this kiln. The FireBox 8 plugs into any
standard 20 Amp household outlet and since it is compact in size you can fire it
up almost anywhere.
You can always fire slower but if you need to
go fast this kiln reaches Glass Fusing temperatures in less than…
The easy to read digital pyrometer allows you
to know exactly what temperature the kiln is.
Unlike other kilns of its size, the FireBox 8
has a hinged lid so you do not have to worry about where to put the hot lid
when you want to work inside the kiln. The lid opens over 90 degrees so it
is out of your way when loading or working inside the kiln. The kiln is
buckled to the base of the kiln so it can't slip off.
- Easy To Use
Using the wooden handle, the lid can be opened
with one ungloved hand. The digital pyrometer allows you to precisely tell
if the temperature is going up or down making holding at specific
temperatures much easier.
The 2000 º F rating makes it capable of firing
a wide variety of materials, including Ceramics. You can load it through
the top or unbuckle the body from the floor, assemble your work, and place
the kiln back over the shelf and onto the slab.
There is a handle positioned on the back of the
kiln that makes it extremely easy to carry.
Contact your distributor or visit the Skutt website for more
information on ﬁring programs and instruction on these various art forms.

(Comes complete with tabletop/wallmount stand, type K thermocouple, storage
case, and battery) Digital pyrometers are much easier to read and more reliable
than analog pyrometers which can stick. With a digital pyrometer it is much
easier to balance the kiln to the correct holding temperature because you can
see small changes in temperature much easier.
Infinite Switch control -
The Infinite Switch is the main temperature control
device for your kiln. The switch, located on the front of the control box, is
called an "infinite " switch because it has an infinite number of settings
between Low and High. As the switch is turned up the kiln heats at a faster rate
and will achieve a higher temperature. The markings on the switch are meant to
be used as reference points not as specific settings. Therefore it is ok to
position the switch anywhere in between these markings. Factors such as the mass
of the load, the age of the kiln and fluctuations in voltage will affect the
rate at which the kiln fires.
Hinged lid which opens over 90 degrees
The new hinged lid design for this style kiln is safer
and more convenient than anything else on the market. Lids exposed to kiln
temperatures remain extremely hot when they are removed. A hinged lid limits
the potential of causing a fire, burning yourself or those working next to you.
The lid when in the opened position is safely behind the kiln. The built in
stops keep it an angle that limits the radiant heat exposure to the user and
still keeps it a safe distance from the table. There is no need to make extra
space in your work area to place the lid. Also, the handle only requires one
hand to lift so you have the other one free to manipulate the glass. Since it
is made of wood and is positioned far enough from the heat of the kiln it does
not require gloves to open.
FireBox 8 hinges safely out giving you full access
to the chamber and the body of the kiln is buckled to the floor so it cannot get
The buckles hold the kiln body securely to the floor of
the kiln so it cannot slip off if bumped. They can also be unbuckled to allow
the artist to lift the chamber off of the floor to arrange their art on the
shelf and then place the chamber back on the slab. This allows the artist to
assemble their piece without having to risk it moving when trying to place it in
Lifting Handle -The
FireBox 8 has a convenient handle attached to the back of the kiln for easy
lifting. The handle is ergonomically placed so when the artist grabs the handle
and the bottom of the control box to lift the kiln, it is evenly balanced. And,
since it is buckled to the floor you can move the whole kiln at once without
having to move the floor separately.
