to expand their range to now include the complete
Kilncare range of glass kilns.
We are particularly pleased with this appointment as

compliments our own here in the U.K.
Also, like ourselves, Jock's Glass is a true family business with
Joyce McGillivray and her Dad, Jock sharing the helm.
"Jock's Glass is a shop based in the Netherlands. Its a real family
business as it's father and daughter working together. Jock started
the shop in 1993 and Joyce joined in 2005 and still love every minute
Our work is very versatile because we make stained glass, make glass
beads and teach different classes in working with hot and cold glass. And
we have a (web)shop in Oosterhout, The Netherlands where you can buy everything you need to work your glassmagic."

Following on from our announcement
that we now sell Nabertherm Top Loaders,
We have struck further deals with Micro Fusion,
Potterycrafts and have further deals in the making.
We aim to offer our expert knowledge in kilns
to more than just the kilns we produce ourselves.
A place where the customer can feel confident that
the kiln that they purchase, is for sale here because
it deserves to be and not because of the profit margins
that are in it.
That is also reflected in our pricing stratagy, not only will
you be purchasing a kiln from the most specialised team in
the U.K. but you should also be paying less for it.
As with the Hobbyfuser, we have looked back
on repair jobs carried out on Bead Cubes and
the results have given us the confidence to extend
the guarantee period to all Bead Cubes to 3 years.
In keeping with our reputation for top customer service,
the guarantee is for all parts and it will also be back dated
to include all Bead Cubes sold in the last 3 years
We have monitored our after-sales work
on all Hobbyfusers since the first one rolled
off the line almost 8 years ago and we have found
the results remarkable, well, actually almost none existant actually.
Such is the lack of faults in this kiln model, we have
instantly increased the ALL parts guarantee to 3 years.
This also includes the elements which is very rare indeed
in the kiln world.
Also, the new 3 year guarantee will back date, effectively
increasing the guarantee on all Hobbyfusers purchased in the last three years.
