Kiln weight: 1 lb
Size: 4" tall x 4" diameter
2300°F rated refractory kiln material

(2) High Density NAC-500* mini graphite crucibles
(1) Graphite 5 hole mold
8" scissor tongs,
8 oz white melting flux for silver
8 oz premium black gold flux.
Note: Two pencil tip torches are
needed to operate this mini kiln. Torches and Propane not included.
* NAC-500 Graphite is very dense.
Our mini crucibles are custom made for us and last twice as many pours as other
graphite crucibles. Stick with these. You will thank yourself.
Please note: The purer the metal,
the less flux is needed, since flux is designed to pull out impurities. So, while some of our customers do smelt
their gold concentrates in this mini Kwik Kiln®, it is a very tedious, small
scale process, due to the limited capacity for 1 to 3 ratio of cons to flux needed.
Therefore, we recommend only melting purer metals in it, such as fine gold,
copper or silver. If you have enough cons to smelt, please check out our larger
Kwik Kiln® series that are designed to accommodate larger crucibles with the
capacity needed for smelting. And, if you do happen to have enough pure gold to
melt into bars with our larger kilns, please remember us in your will.
Firing the KK6
beyond the operating effectiveness of the refractory kiln material or the use
of any other torch or propellant automatically voids any actual or implied
warranties. No guarantee is given on the amount of gold or
silver or other precious metals obtained from this process, as it depends upon
the quality of your materials to begin with. The more precious metals that are
in your black sand, ore, or old jewelry, the larger your results will be.
