Re: deep drop ceramic mold

Is there a hole for escaping air, or is your glass sitting on trapped air in the nose/mouth?

Re: LIQUID GLASS................CMC.............Alternatives

I use a very weak cornstarch when I run out of Glass Tac. It totally burns off. If I need something thick, I use dish soap- straight. I bought some CMC from Brad, and find there is very little difference.

The radial arm tile saw posted above can be set at specific angles. Cost about $200-250 at Lowe's.

How about cooking spray, or spray oil? I need something that doesn't collect in the holes.

Re: Quenching glass

Quenched is best for us, the glass user, but Bullseye can't deal with the wetness. They need to be able to size the pieces as part of the crushing process. Also, the moisture messes with the magnet they use to remove any metal fines from the crushers.

Re: Scrap Tekta

Sometimes, I'm not very good at explaining. I may leave out a crucial word, so before you tear me apart, see if you can figure out what I am talking about. Scrap must be clean, and stacked onto a square piece of tekta. This formula is for producing 6mm clear glass. Determine the volume of the square...

Re: how to create a flat bottom on the slump with a ball mou

Dry plaster cannot be used in that ball surface mold with out leaving some sort of marks on the bowl. The slumping glass will pick up the texture of the powder by pressing and leaving a small lump in the bowl's bottom, at the touchdown spot. Very wet plaster poured into the bottom of that mold will ...

Re: rust on glass from reciprolap

Well, does the oil interfere with the grinding? I haven't found the line between oiled to prevent rust, and oil free- ish.

ROC. I like that moniker, Havi. It really fits this squatty machine.

No more rust. Thanks to all. My new question:

How big of a part does the oil play in the act of grinding?
