Postby S.TImmerman » Thu Feb 21, 2013 3:05 am

Innovative Glass Solutions has come out with a turbo top that get the glass molten in about an hour. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=V6hmF_KNBiM


If its Ok for glass to melt glass that fast why cant I do it with my Caladra? AFAP to 1685? I've heard of bubbles forming and shocking glass..but if they have no problem going that fast why can't I without a turbo top? http://glassart.craftgossip.com/2010/04 ... raph-fast/

Thank you

I don't know anything about the turbo top, but I would hesitate to go up that fast for fear of breaking the pot containing the glass.
