Re: Cock Trip!!!

Okay guys, I'm talking some serious testosterone here. Who's with me? First, we BASE jump into the Grand Canyon. Then we spend 5 days fighting rapids and boredom, until they kick us off the rafts. After that point, it's a free for-all, a la MAD MAD MAD MAD MAD MAD MAD WORLD to the top of the canyon...

Clever stuff.

Cool soundtrack too, that's just how I imagined Jimi Hendrix and Herb Alpert would have sounded jamming together at the '70 Isle of Wight festival.

If Herb could have made it.

My wife gave me some of the fluffy filler she uses in quilting, it is about an inch thick and I glued it onto a backing board. I put that in the display case, it looks like a cloud inside the case. I made up some S-hooks from nichrome wire, stab the fluffy stuff with one end and hang the jewelry off...

Re: Need help hanging glass without frame

Just got a job to create 3 20x20" glass panels for a new home and they want it installed "invisibly", i.e., with no visible framing. Never done this before, but I know a lot of you guys must have. Help! And thanks! :roll: I don't like glue either. How about something like this though; http://www.ar...

Exactly what Tony said. The single layer of gold is so fine, it looks like the skeleton of a natural leaf when it is dry, dry. You don't need bits of frit between the layers to allow trapped air to escape, because the leaf is so thin, Bonnie. 1,000 leaves of gold are still thinner than a gnat's hair...

I understand what you mean about underpower resulting in devit because it takes longer to get to fuse temp and more energy to hold it there, hence more time in the devit range. The floor space of the kiln I built is (in your money) 20" square (1.66 sq. ft.) and 8" deep. Total floor area =2.8 sq. ft....

That sounds like good management and a great aid to teaching the graphical representation of what the schedule is doing. Currently I have 14 schedules saved on the CAL9500P and the memory usage is still only 20% used. I keep records on paper for each schedule and pull up the one I need, as required....

Andy, Do you know if it works with a CAL9500P? Jack That's the same unit I use for the controller Jack, but why do you want to use a computer if you have the 9500P surely using a PC as a controller defeats the object of using a controller -just curious? If it helps, you can download a demo of the C...
