Re: Choosing a wet tile saw

Hi Jim, I did also buy the 10" from Harbor Freight- we have not set it up yet. I am not clear on what 'cutting a Kerr' is. And did you need a second water line? Thanks for clarification.

Re: Choosing a wet tile saw

Hi Marty- I will be cutting pot melts, and various other pieces of 1/4" thick glass. Not big pieces, but I may want to trim some longer pieces at some point, as well. I think as I use it, I will get more ideas of how else to use it.The sliding blade will suffice. I will be buying a good diamond...

Re: Choosing a wet tile saw

This is true. Glass is a continuous world of new discoveries. I will bite the bullet; go with the 10”. Am wondering if there are options other than MK. From all I read, it appears to be a great saw. But wonder about others(?) thank you.

Re: Choosing a wet tile saw

In talking with MK, they say that a 7" blade should work fine for my needs, and that makes the affordable options much broader. So, does anyone have additional thoughts on 7" vs 10"?

Re: Choosing a wet tile saw

Thanks, Brad. In reading reviews, I am also alittle wary of the HF saw. I called MK and found out I can buy a reconditioned saw, and may opt to do that. Just as an FYI- Lowe's carries some MK at reasonable prices. Do you have thoughts on what hp I would need, and what other attributes I should look ...

Choosing a wet tile saw

Hi All, I want to purchase a tile saw.. I do not cut super thick pieces like pattern bars, but maximum 1/2" thick glass. Does anyone have recommendations for an affordable dependable tile saw, and size of blade and hp?
Many thanks!
Bonnie

Re: Slumping question

Thanks, Dana. I did go for it and went up extremely slowly and it did successfully slump. No warping.

Slumping question

Hi- I have a concern about slumping a 30" long oval piece of glass into a VERY shallow, but tall (on the 2 ends) mold. The glass is 13" wide in the middle and tappers down to 5" at either end. So, it is essentially supported at the 2 ends which are only 5" each. My concern is tha...

Re: Finished thick piece, but now need layer at bottom

Thanks, Don; I think this is best.
Are you referring to small frit (chads), and place them between the white and the thick glass above it?

Finished thick piece, but now need layer at bottom

I am creating a sink, fused the glass to 7/16”, and now realize I need to add another layer, a ST layer of Firelight White to the bottom. I know that by putting the thick glass on top of the white at bottom, I will create bubbles. But by flipping it, topping it with the white(which I will score to m...

Re: SPECTRUM GLASS CLOSING DOWN

Sadness. Can’t get my head around this. What a huge amount of resources (machinery and technology), Spectrum will be leaving behind! I am hoping someone picks up on this and keeps producing the wonderful glass products Spectrum creates. As Uroborous is only hand rolled, and Spectrum is machine rolle...

Re: Broken platter re-fuse

yes, Vonon. That would have been wise! next time that happens..I shall do this. Hopefully won't need to. I started over from scratch and carefully and slowly fired the piece.. (no Elmers glue this time. I believe a blob of that in the middle of the center black piece on the first firing caused the o...

Re: Broken platter re-fuse

Thanks for responding, Jerry. I will go up much more conservatively next time, for sure. But the thickness at the most, at any time was 3/8" I believe. The glass, after the first fusing, was 1/4", and then with the added 3rd black rectangle layer to tack on, was another 1/8". When I p...

Re: Broken platter re-fuse

Sorry- I thought I had posted it.. here it is. System 96.

The glass actually separated., as you can see...and because it is a double thick clear base, with another single black layer, my ramp may have been too fast.

Can't figure it out.

Broken platter re-fuse

Good Morning. So sad to find this happened to my platter. On first fuse, without the black square with letter on it, it developed a huge bubble in the middle, which I broke, filled in with fruit, and covered with the black piece and Japanese letter. But the air may have been trapped, or schedule too...

Re: Shipping large piece-best way?

To clarify- I have been fusing to 1410 and holding if I am shipping..so the thickness is consistant. I did use an professional art shipper for one shipment: wood crate, a-frame, etc.. sent by air...which worked great ,but was very, very costly. Had to ship 2 more pieces later on to another client.

Re: Shipping large piece-best way?

Sorry that I never did finish this thread! I did end up working with a UPS shipper.. who carefully used a wooden support and a box within a box, with alot of either foam or peanuts, I don't recall right now. But the wooden structure he built, I believe, held it in tact safely..and the glass arrived ...
