Re: S/Steel tube ,patten bar

Thank you so much for posting this! For a larger pipe that's going to have about 3.25 inches of glass in it- how long should I hold it at the top temp?

Really appreciate your post!

A link wou...

Re: New Colour Bar project

Les, You have been nothing but kind and helpful on this board. I too, almost left after a man was rude to me. It's easy to be crass and rude behind a screen. You cannot control all the events that happen to you, but you can decide not to be reduced by them. Love your work and really enjoy the photos...

Re: shank for glass buttons: metal, glass or plastic?

My mother , and her dutch sisters are all world class knitters and even spin their wool. I bought tiny copper shanks and made 1/2 inch etched cabs. They could not use any of these as they were too heavy. I think you need to know what the buttons are for before making them. I ended up using 1 layer a...

Re: MK -100 saw water source

Hi Charlie! Nice to meet you "face to face" on linkin , bits of crushed glass for the most part. I'm just wondering if there is a better way to keep everything out. I keep those large paint buckets (5 gal?) full of water and have the pump in there. I was kinda wondering if people swapped o...

MK -100 saw water source

image.jpg I've been cutting a lot of pattern bars and started having a problem with the spray attachment getting plugged up. I ALWAYS use a large bucket to put the water pump with fresh water instead of recycling it. I unclogged it today and cut about 20 slices of a 5x2.5 pattern bar and it happene...
