This Large Bead Rack is designed for potters, jewelers and glass artists. It allows you to easily glaze fire beads, pendants, buttons, etc. - without the worry of them sticking to your kiln shelf. The entire rack gets placed in the kiln with your glazed pieces on it.
This rack is made from two durable cast stoneware supports with six 10 x 7/64" long nichrome wires. The wires rest on grooves in the rack, so they can be easily rearranged to accommodate different size pieces. The wires are heavy gauge metal and can withstand multiple firings. We recommend that if you are firing heavy items, limit the weight put on the bars and/or move the uprights inward to reduce the chances of sagging.
The footprint of the uprights are 3.5 x 2 inches and are 6.5 inches high with bars at 1.5, 3.5 and 5.5 inches.
Maximum firing temperature is Cone 10 (2345 F).
Although I have yet to put it through a firing, I am very pleased with the bead rack. Great White North is efficient and I received my order very quickly!
