Paragon F120 Front Loading Digital Kiln - Width: 10.75" - Height: 7.0" - Depth: 11.0"
Anneal large glass pieces in the digital F-120 lamp working kiln. Raise the spring-loaded vertical-drop door to insert your piece with a punty rod. Lower the door. The punty rod extends outside the firing chamber, allowing the glass to anneal safely. This allows the glass to anneal safely.You can make pieces up to 5” tall in the F-120. Maintain the annealing temperature with the Sentry Xpress 3-key controller.
The Sentry Xpress 3-key controller is packed with features. It includes two modes: Single Speed and 8-segment Ramp-Hold.

The F-series lid elements use a new element groove that eliminates element pins. The element coils are wider than the groove opening, so the elements stay in place without pins. The element is mounted in the top of the kiln for safety. There is no sidewall element to touch with a punty rod. With the element in the top, you can also fuse and slump glass.
Imagine the glass you could sag, slump, and fuse with this kiln. Make small bowls, pendants, earrings, cufflinks, and even bracelets. Enjoy the glittering beauty of dichroics. This kiln will give you a haven of creative enjoyment that you will enjoy for many years.

This was my first kiln and I can say it is an excellent product. The digital kiln control has many program functions from ramp modes, to delays, and annealing. This is a perfect kiln for any level of artist making pieces under a foot tall.
So Easy to use

Love this kiln. I started with an old retro fitted paragon that was about 10 years old, then got an f240 and now added this to my arsenal. I ran into a problem of needed a kiln for a couple apprentices but not enough power to add another 220a kiln, this worked out perfect. Great started kiln because you will not be restricted in height. If you are doing prodo and are debating wide or tall, this baby you can get a shelf and double your floor space for your pieces. The computer is super easy to run vs some of the other manufactures out there. Love it!

ALTHOUGH I CANT SAY I PURCHASED A F-120 FROM MGA PERSONALLY; I CAN SAY THESE THINGS ARE BUILT LIKE TANKS. THIS IS THE ONE THING IN MY SHOP THAT ISNT MY BETH BRAVO THAT HASNT GIVEN ME A SINGLE PROBLEM. i HAVENT HAD A PROBLEM WHATSOEVER WITH THIS KILN AND GOT IT USED! IT ACTUALLY HAS THE MOUNTAIN GLASS ARTS LOGO ON IT SO I KNOW IT DID INITIALLY COME FROM THERE. IF YOURE ON THE FENCE BETWEEN THIS AND ANOTHER CHEAPER KILN BUY THIS ONE ITS A WORTHY INVESTMENT

This will be my second F120, great kiln, my first one has taken a beating for the last 10 years from me and the previous owner, without any problems, and is still going strong, this second one is just to expand, not to replace my first one!
Perfect Kiln for Users at all Skill Levels
I purchased this kiln exactly one year ago, and I could not be more pleased with this product, or the way in which is was shipped. Right away I jumped into the manual, that was comprehensive and easy to understand. After learning how to adjust temperature, set predetermined schedules, and times for each, I was off to the races! In times of doubt, as to what the display message was saying, I was able to refer to the manual for a quick and easy answer. I cannot stress enough how easy to use Paragon has made this Kiln. I have since seen it in a multitude of shops, and have come to realize it is a comprehensive kiln, meant for glassworkers of all skill levels and skill sets. I have used mine since day one, and intend to use it for many years to come!
