1. Find Kilns Locally - New & UsedYou can sometimes find a kiln locally, especially used electric kilns, so do make sure the kiln is in good condition before finalizing a sale.
- Check your newspaper's classified section under arts and crafts and miscellaneous items for sale.
- Check local artist supply stores (check your local yellow pages under "Artist Supplies"); they often have a community bulletin board, even if they don't carry kilns.
- If you are lucky enough to live near a larger retail ceramic supplier (check your local yellow pages under "Pottery Supplies"), you may save money on the shipping charges buying through them.
2. Craigslist - Used
Craigslist.org lists all sorts of things. Start by choosing your region or state. Craigslist may then ask you to narrow down to areas within that region. Once you have your locality pinpointed, look for the "For Sale" list and click on "Arts and Crafts."
This list will almost certainly be quite extensive. At the top of the page, type "kiln" in the search text box and click the Search button. Again, these will almost always be used kilns.
