Re: buying a stand alone controller

Not sure who actually makes the Evenheat Rampmaster, but I have a stand-alone which can do all the things you want. It's been totally reliable for several years. What I like its that's it's wall-mounted, so I don't have to crouch down to program it (I don't crouch s well any more) and I can read it ...

Re: High Temp wire for fusing in bottles

Most places which carry fusing supplies will have nichrome wire; pottery supply stores also carry it. I have used 16g copper wire for bottles...twist 2 pieces together (Morton has a handy inexpensive tool for this, or you can use a variable speed drill and a vise) and it will be strong and attractiv...

Re: Dichro Slide

I checked the Glasshopper website (www.glasshopperpatterns.com). Their dichro slide instructions say it works well uncapped, and they recommend using your "usual fusing" schedule. I suspect it needs to be fired up into the fusing range rather than just a firepolish.

Stephen, is that like the "elevator butt" response we get when we scratch the cat's back at the base of the tail?

Re: dichro problems - Wrong glass cleaner

You can also try firing it dichro side down; that's one of the suggestions Monty gave me, and it worked.

Re: Questions about rock inclusions

When you pre-fire the rocks, it's a good idea to put them under a stainless steel bowl...just in case they do explode, it will be contained.

Re: Wizard Grinder Bearing going

I bought a new motor from Glastar for my Superstar; my husband replaced it; works great! The motors of Glastar and Inland are not universal. I didn't mean that. I just meant to give an example of a replacement motor working well (and it was pretty easy to install, also). I expect replacing an Inlan...

Re: Got Free Rods and Glass

You could start off with a Hot Head torch and Mapp gas. Then get a more sophisticated set-up if you decide you like torchworking.

Re: masks

What kind of spray are you talking about? Remember, boron nitride is for stainless steel, not ceramic. If your mold is ceramic, you might try Primo Primer. It can be brushed or sprayed, and is easily removed after firing so detail doesn't get clogged up.

Re: Is this devit?

I've noticed that some opals, when full-fused, seem to show a different color on the top than along the flattened-out edges. Not devit,just a slight color difference.

Re: Ever seen THIS before?

Since no one has been able to identify what went on, I think I'd wear a respirator when cleaning the kiln, just to be safe.

I'd suggest you contact CBS tomorrow. It may be that you had some defective glass (it happened to me once).
