I ordered a Paragon Fusion 16 about 2 weeks ago for slumping and fusing. I added a bead door fo the order and am having second thoughts after I saw on the Paragon web site that the kiln will fire slower with a bead window. I contacted Paragon and they verified this and also indicated that there could be a cold spot in the kiln from the bead door that could affect the piece. I have never done flameworking but thought it would be something that I might do in the future so I ordered the bead door. At this point I am somewhat sorry and may try to have it removed from the order. I was wondering what experiences anyone had with this. Any advice would be appreciated.
