The discount should be a cost of doing business for the gallery owner. I feel deep discounts discredit the gallery as well as the artist. Small discounts 5-10 % should be written into your contract as to be bourne by gallery, unless you agree to split the cost of "doing business" . I feel that split...

Thanks for asking Tony. Yes it does have a drain and a drip container for medium/water. If you've been to the Corning Studio cold shop --it would be a cousin to the mill grinding system, but lower tech.&smaller.

honing Machine--can it be a lap grinder?

Could someone advise me on whether I can use this "honing machine" as a lap grinder. I purchased it CHEAP $150.00, but I don't want to invest in 3-4 magnetic discs if it won't preform for me. Here are the specs: DAYTON Split phase motor HP 1/3 RPM 172S 115Volts FLA 6.0 FRS6Z HZ 60 PH1 INS,CR A, Max ...

I would first give the teachers and the principal a proposal on what you wish to do .

I have found the more successes you have in the school volunteer m...

Silly ?--probably asked before/can't find answer in Archives

I'm fairly sure the answer to this question is yes, but I just wanted to be safe. Can I sandblast--etch on tempered glass? No great carving or any thing--just basically want to mask out an area and frost glass. The glass is approx.6-8mm thick. Thanks in advance ! Greatly appreciated! Kelly Burke Mak...

I believe "U got Glass? ", a warm glass sponsor, carries bails that are a flat disc with a loop on top to thread a necklace through. If memory serves me right(which lately :shock: is a little shakey... they're about $5. ea. Hope this of some help. Rio Grande also carries items that may be useful.......
