    Default Jen Ken 11x11x9 digital kiln $675 & 40mm NG Herbie

    Jen Ken Octagon Kiln, 11x11x9, digital controller, bought brand new for $750 less than 2 years ago. works perfectly, mint condition, looking to go up a few sizes. Asking $675, willing to trade w/ cash on my end for a paragon f130 or larger. Also have a 40mm Herbie (NG), tuned for propane, needs a lil work, asking $1250, willing to trade that too.

    What work on the herbie is needed . I have a new stash of og moss I could sell a bit and buy it cash pretty quick .

    I set back some of my stash to sell for a bench burner. I want a herbie , a grand champion . I want to spend a few months on some different burners .

    I know a few people have converted herbies and the resale market is easyer than in the past .

    I would need some good flame pics maybe even a video sent to my phone so my buddies that can tune can look at it cycle through the knob .

    That way I would know where I am at as far as can they walk me though it or is it beyond walk you through it deal and required more shipping before plug and play

    the Herbie needs a little more tuning, and maybe an internal cleaning or a fuel ball($8.00 from abr). I'll post pics later today. I set it up w/ a red GOK 50mbar pressure reducer(You'll need one, I suggest international ebay, as I'll include all the other adapters) and 40psi oxygen the outer most stage doesn't seal properly causing occasional pops from the outer ring. All the ports are clean, centerfire and 2nd stage are fine, and the torch is in overall decent condition

    Do you need a bigger kiln to produce more knock off dabbacinos?

    Why the fuck is every shithead that has a poorly tuned natty herbie saying it is a herbie tuned for propane that "needs work". It is a "fucked with the knobs herbie not tuned for shit I dont know what I was thinking please buy this thing I am unqualified to operate let alone tune herbie".

    I wonder the same thing needs work is one thing .

    But surface mix torches popping and making all kinds of racket is not safe .

    I understand a bit of popping and hear herbi es can make noise .

    But I have ran a few properly tuned herbies that once lit you could roll the knob from pinpoint to big fluff with no crazy popping and sputtering .

    But props for being up front and telling all the issues .

    Some don't they just sell these ng herbies as is . Know that they have been proven tune worthy by j Howard.

    LOL, no those dabbachinoz were given to me to repair, so they'll sit there until I take everything out for target practice

    As far as that herbie goes, I just didn't have time to finish it, I'm a pro mechanic, and I know how to work on herbies, I'm finishing a full rebulid and tune on another one, I'll post pics when I get done, it'll be real nice.

    And, yes there are way too many people attempting to unload poorly tuned or not tuned or timed NG torches
