The UV light for curing glue is not the same wave length for finding the tin side of float.

A long-wave UV light cures the glue. A short-wave UV light shows the tin side, so you can ask about which light for which purpose.

Try ordering some "strikers" that are 'originally' BLUE. They can strike neo-lavendar, blue, pink or violet. It is really hard to file the unfired sheets so we don't pick up the wrong one. I recently ordered 1122.50 red and got an "orange" which struck RED. Aaarrrgh! - Barbara

Float needs to go higher than Bullseye. Bert will probably have a great schedule for you, but each kiln is unique for the specifics. If you can watch your kiln to monitor its own performance, you will figure it out for yourself. - Barbara

I work with UV glues all the time. They are not guaranteed to stay stable in a wet environment, and I have had them separate under wet conditions. This led me to my response. - Barbara

Actually, sometimes water will break down the glue. Try soaking the piece in as warm water as you think it can stand and keep it up until the glue releases. Use a razor blade to start the separation. Hope that helped. - Barbara

Turning it over and UV gluing is one option, but Loctite also has a clear 2-part epoxy which should do the trick. Use the 5-minute setup (smells like hell), but that should work. Fast setup would be the UV at 5-15 seconds. Hope that helped. - Barbara

We use fiber shelves, mostly, with a couple of instances where a smoother surface is needed, and the shelf is mullite or RS100. Only thing I have to adjust is the firing time. Glass on fiber fires hotter than on ceramic, so firing time/temp is less. So we always have different firing schedules for e...

I absolutely encourage you to incorporate. The main reason for this is the self-employment taxes levied. Especially if you are not sure of your income, your "salary" is listed as "salaries for officers" and not subject to self-employment taxes, which can result in several thousand dollars a year--wh...

Re: Pigment of my imagination?

i'm always curious why there isn't a good magenta or fuschia in the color lines of any of the fusible, and why the most intriguing ring mottles don't handle fusing well - no i've not tried them but i've been told they don't like going to full fuse but i would love to fuse a layer of ring mottles to ...

Sales&Use Audit Results--good info

I was just audited by the NC Dept of Revenue for compliance with the state sales & use tax collection/reporting for the last 3 years. Interesting results that I think I should share.

When the Baroque came out initially, it was REALLY erratic (it bar-oke all over the place). Spectrum told me that the reason for the problem is that they mix glasses that don't really like each other to create the swirl. This is, of course, the good news and the bad news. There is already tension in...

Bert's exactly right. I go for a 4 1/2 to 5" drop. You'll keep the thickness at the lowest point at about 1/2". I wouldn't suggest anything thinner. If you set a kiln-washed shelf under the drop, you can stop the drop with a slight flat spot for drilling the hole. Also, as said before, check your se...
