Re: Scrap into sheet?

Re: Light weight Kiln Shelf

You might also try the Armstrong Ceiling tile that Warm Glass sells, it is light weight and fairly durable.

Re: Buying Bullseye Glass

I am fortunate enough to live within an hour or so of Brad's store, so I am able to purchase what I think I will need when he has his 40% off sales. But I used to travel 2-3 hours 1 way to buy wholesale from Art Glass House when they were in Ga. It may be worth it to find a wholesaler and travel to ...

Re: Choosing a wet tile saw

Spell check...right. what Marty said. I found that the water outlets on the saw were insufficient. I just put a splitter on the line and added a movable line that I can direct at the cut, strapped on the saw with wire-ties, it cuts beautifully with the added water.

Re: Choosing a wet tile saw

I had a 7" MK but I sold it and bought a 10" from Harbour Freight..it's about $220,,,I added a thin piece of acrylic to the top of the table and then cut a Kerr through, as the area on the table was a bit wide for thin cuts. It has worked great with a good blade and an added waterline, bot...
