Paul,

Go to a local machine shop to have the plate made. Cast iron is great. Should be a few hundred.

It's actually not a Microsoft issue this time.

They did mention Unix and Linux. Not sure where I got the MS part...

Hi Denise, We appear to be neighbors. ;) I just started doing some art festivals here in town and have a white EZ UP tent. It's ok but nothing special. In my first show some of the other artists said they're known as "EZ UP, EZ BLOW AWAY". Ha ha. They told me some really good tents were the Finale ...

Tony,

Are you recirculating your cooling water? How about the other folks out there using laps. Will recirculated cooling water work? Seems to me if it does it might produce a problem at the polishing stage.

I noticed grease oozing into the motor area from the gear head. I took the gear head apart and found it full of water. A bad seal in ...

If you want to use two seperate thermocouples you can get a plug setup from an instrumentation shop. That way you will have one tc lead coming from the controller that will plug into the tc of the kiln you are using. The plugs must match the type of tc you are using, most likely K type.

Along the lines of this topic... I've heard of a publication, Profitable Glass Quarterly. Has anybody seen this? Do you feel it is worthwhile for warm glass?
