I built a mailbox kiln from instructions I found here on LE.

I did make the mistake of buying an inexpensive controller though and although I am sure it functions perfectly the instructions that I got with it look like they had been written in Chinese then translated through every language in the world before finally being translated into english.

I spent 17 years as an electronics tech in the Navy so I was able to make some sense of them but it's an uphill battle.

These days they have much better instructions and simpler controllers available for a third of the price and if I hadn't got a really good deal on a barely used JenKen I would still be using my mailbox kiln but these days I just use it to pre-warm glass tips if I use it at all.
