Most kilns draw about 13-14 amps... This is every time it clicks on (cycling many times a hour) and this is pretty close maximum capacity of most outlet circuit breakers. These usually being 15 amps. If oxy-con and kiln are on same circuit the are trying to rob each other of power and causing a sort of "brown out" on that circuit. IF you move oxy-con to different receptacle circuit, or add circuit for kiln, it should solve your problem...
