Hey guys and gals, I'm new here! I wanted to show off my new build!

I recently built this heat treating oven / kiln / furnace for heat treating my knives. Although the process could be used to build other types of furnaces of varying sizes. I've been able to get this heat treating kiln up to around 1975 F thus far.



Some Stats:
245 Volts (measured at outlet)
3372 watts
17.8 Ohm coils (2 in series)
13.76 Amps
16 gauge Kanthal coils on each wall
Chamber = 6.5'' x 5'' x 18''
Watt/ft3 = 9,962

The video below is a full guide on how to build one like mine along with a parts list and wiring diagram in the description of the video.

Hope yall enjoy the build!
Cheers,
RBO
