The deluxe kit includes kiln, custom refining flux, graphite 2 depression assay mold, (2) 30 gram clay '1 shot' crucibles, 18" tongs, (1) stainless steel stirring rod, instruction manual & smelting tips, plus one fused silica melting crucible.
Chamber is 6" tall x 5" diameter.
Requires a 1200 watt microwave with 10" inside height clearance.
The fused silica melting crucible is a high quality crucible and is the best choice for melting larger and purer amounts of gold, silver, and bronze, including old jewerly. Made of fused silica with clay bond, for temperatures up to 2500°F (1371°C). Must be pre-glazed before smelting (instructions included).
Suggestion: If you are new to this method, use the 'one shot' crucibles until you become familiar with the process, as they are more economical to replace than the fused silica crucible.
