Re: Tiny Hole Saw Bits for a Dremel?

Lynne: Yeah I think he did continue with a new supplier. I go back a long way and he was very reliable. Great to work with. I bought my sintered wheels from him at a great price. He no longer sells them, just when I need to replace mine. I suggest you check out the ebay supplier whose link I posted ...

Re: Tiny Hole Saw Bits for a Dremel?

Daniel is still in business. Gotta work his site to get to the drills. Lau has worked fine for me. I too have drilled 1000s of holes. Get an average of 10-12 holes per bit. They cost peanuts per bit. Recently I bought from another supplier on ebay https://www.ebay.com/itm/391717482444?ssPageName=STR...

Re: The screw on running pliers.

let me add one thing here. The thickest glass I break is 6 mil, so thicker glass may behave differently.

Re: The screw on running pliers.

Brad or anyone. I understand the use of the screw, but not the benefit. Since the glass is not flexible, neither the glass nor the pliers know the position of the screw when the break is made. Once pressure is applied to the pliers, the glass has to fully break for the screw to come into play. Thus ...

The screw on running pliers.

Just a fun question. I have been fusing for many years and obviously used running pliers all that time. Often when I use the pliers I wonder what good that screw on the pliers does. When the pliers are in place to separate the glass, neither the pliers nor the glass knows where that screw is. The gl...

Re: glue on bales

If you look at the failures, you will see that one or the other of the attached pieces has all the adhesive. The other one is improperly prepared.
Again, check my tutorial. It explains it all.

Re: glue on bales

What are you using as an adhesive?
A smooth surface is not what you want to adhere to.

I have a tutorial on my site (see below) about adhering bails.

Re: Glass/Cash Survey

I laugh when i see a glass jewelry vendor with his/her pendants in those black sectioned trays. They are telling their customers that their pendants are cheap and plentiful. Sharon (my wife) used to set up the booth and just about every piece was separately displayed. Our backstock was under the cou...

Re: Some More Detailed Photos of the Enamels

Lynn,
If you give a class or ebook on how to do that, I would take it.
I really like the results!

Re: Concerning firing enamels

As to burning out, that should not happen at all. It is possible that the pigment in the paint has decomposed. Do not trust the color of the unfired paint to indicate the final color. Covering the paint has no benefit in retaining the color. You should be able to paint and refire. The refiring only ...

Re: How to Fire Dichroic and Retain Colour

Red and gold are two problematic colors for dichro. Several years ago I bout a large amount of scrap from ATF. Included was a small (about 2x4) piece of a dull, ugly reddish dichro. When it fired it became a gorgeous 24kt gold. I sent half the piece to Glenn Brown at ATF and asked if I could buy sev...

Re: How to Fire Dichroic and Retain Colour

I don't know if they still do it, but both CBS and ATF made sample sets of their colors with a 2x2 piece of each color.
I bought these and cut them in half and fired half. I mounted them together for a sampling of each before and after. Even with these, there is some variation.

Re: COE 90 frit balls ok on COE 96 Christmas trees?

I use a little bit of my paints....just a dot, to attach the balls. This seems to act as a buffer for the differing COEs.
