Get thee to the hardware store, not HD, where you will find someone who will sell you a flange that you can screw to the canister and adapt to the hose.

Re: extruding glass strands from pot

Those were done individually on a punty (pontil) in a hot shop and then just grouped together for display. There are probably holes in the base for the glass which is most likely glued down.
I'd hate to have to ship that anywhere.

Re: Cutting Very Thick Glass Slabs

3" wide, ok. How about thickness? Are you making a pot melt (or whatever) that's 3" thick (by 3" wide by 6-10" long)?

Re: Cutting Very Thick Glass Slabs

The Result blades may need to be dressed before the first use to remove any plating material covering the outer layer of diamond. Run the blade (wet) through a chunk of brick or silicon carbide sharpening stone; just a couple of cuts should do it. Some people have a fetish about dressing the blades,...

Re: Should I switch to System 96?

1) First of all, while this is all true about Bullseye, I found their representatives to be exceedingly arrogant, rude and obnoxious. A long time ago I decided to make art with 96 rather than put up with unprofessional behavior. Considering the posts for incompatibility/ devitrification/ etc. I hav...

Re: extruding glass strands from pot

I don't read the post as vitrigraph stuff- roykirk seems to me to be talking about having stuff come out of the pot as if the surface of the glass is exploding, like fireworks, no? Lots of problems- first with pulling the pot out to draw glass from it (or lifting a kiln lid to get at the stuff), the...

Vonon- Re rivets- you've got some wiggle room with the silicone but rivet heads can be ground almost flat and still work.

Re: 10" saw blade

Set up a stop, set saw to cut 1.25", cut groove and flip to finish.
I'm finding a lot of drag on the thicker pieces (10" Result blade with 5" stiffeners, plenty of water) otherwise.

Re: Ventilation

Interesting topic. Working alone I position a fan to blow fumes away from me, gently, so as not to cool the soldering iron. With a group that wouldn't work as someone(s) :lol: would always be in the firing line. I've been thinking about a range hood exhaust fan dangling over the layout table. That ...

Re: Ventilation

Greg- Good to hear from you. I think the station fans have charcoal filters in them. I always thought that the lead fumes were the least of the problem. Soldering is about 700F, way below vapor points. However some of the lead casting groups have discussed this and the oxide issue was brought up: so...

Ventilation

Specifically, ventilation for stained glass soldering. I know there are forums (fora?) for SG but I want to know what the denizens left here have to say. When I've messed with SG in the past I worked in front of a serious lab-style extraction hood but I will need to provide ventilation for 6-8 stude...

Re: Forming co-op gallery in Israel

Have the American tourists come back? They were the only ones buying, last I heard. I have no idea what level of work you're looking for but get in touch with Hiyuli Liberman in Tel Aviv. There was a fabulous group show in the Eretz Israel Museum in 2015- try those participants (including some wonde...

You're asking some very elementary questions- on what basis did you accept this commission and are you willing to accept responsibility for the integrity of the piece?

Re: Question on speeding up cooling below 750°F

Franzeska- My biggest (7'x 3'x 16") kiln will take 12 to 18 hours to cool from 700 to room temp, depending on what's in it. The Paragon GLs are much quicker. If I don't have anything really valuable or risky in the big kiln and I'm getting antsy, I can crack it ½" at 250F. That's at the fr...
