Re: WORKING WITH LIQUID ENAMELS OR GLASS PAINTS

I wonder what response shall I get if I put this on BE bulletin board. Have you been to the BE bulletin board regarding this topic? I don't see a post from you. There is a thread on Colorline, started in December. The last post includes a link to an article by a frequent poster on this board which ...

Re: Klyr Fire and GlasTac

Thank you for your reply. I had been looking on the vendors' websites for information, with not much luck. I know some MSDS are available on request but are not available otherwise from the manufacturers. I found out that Slumpy's < http://www.slumpys.com/Company-Information/Company/MSDS-Sheets > ha...

Klyr Fire and GlasTac

Can anyone tell me the difference or send me to a reference explaining the difference between Thompson Enamel Klyr Fire and Bullseye GlasTac? Functionally similar, interchangeable, but used by different communities? Klyr Fire is more concentrated than GlasTac (red)? Just use hairspray or sugar solut...

Re: Source for 36" or Longer Zero Centering Ruler?

Maybe a bit fancier than you want:
WWR36 and WWR900

Available in imperial or metric, but not on the same rule. They have combination rules, but not a centering rule.

Re: Leponitt Heavy duty pliers - no plastic - do they work?

In the case you cannot find the plastic dip in Australia (where I used to work, we referred to it as "plastisol"), you might look for liquid electrical insulation and try that out. I have no idea whether or not it will actually work, though. It is usually found in the same area as electric...

Re: Lead free clear

Check the MSDS for it. If you know where this is online, without contacting the company, it would be nice if you would provide a link. I could not find any links when I looked. Edit: I believe that you will have to contact Spectrum or Uroboros. I found an MSDS for glass frit (apparently Uroboros fr...

Re: GlasTac not drying

While I can't find a product sheet for GlasTac, one of the project kits includes this step:

"Allow the GlasTac to dry completely. Minimally, it should be left to dry overnight."

Re: Float differences

Dragon Glass has some schedules online:

I guess that to answer whether or not you have to worry about the tin side more details about your application might be required. Colors go on the non-tin side.

I was going to post something similar earlier today, but I'm not sure how well it would be received. Unless you are going to take any of the measures in the previous post, the best thing to do is leave it alone. If you are going to replace the wiring, coat the frayed end with something or wrap it be...

Re: mold like this but in 4"

Can you slump the square shape in a round mold? The Bullseye mold's description is 0.75" deep for the 3.5" x 3.5" slumper. This one is 5.7" in diameter and 0.9" deep. If my calculations are correct, that will fit a 4.03" x 4.03" square. http://www.dragonglassmolds....

Re: Fusing/Slumping or Tack/Slumping at same time

Dragon Glass has a series of videos using float glass fused and slumped in one firing. I don't remember the contents of all the videos, but the first, An introduction to the fusing and slumping of glass , covers this. However, if I remember correctly, much of this particular set uses clear float gla...
