ahh... thanks andy.
it's about to get real pretty soon. Dragged the spare stuff outta the shop in Florida. She was a little stinky on its first fire, but she verks good!
The glass cast is in shipping from R&R and waiting on the slow boat from China for pid parts. I guess this means I gotta get a grip on this shelf I call a workbench.
Plenty of workspace next where you have the bottle, IFR gun and knife setting. Besides, you've got lots of working area on top of the kiln. Why is it empty? Doesn't look like it's on.
Translated-----build a shelf over the work bench
Translation of the translation: pile it on top until the angle of repose is discovered or the top collapses; whichever comes first.
This bench is 12 feet long. That translates into a 9foot shelf. Flat surfaces suck. I've got to get on this tonight, it's totally out of control now.
Without a Pid, I took a wild run at casting some of that mystery glass. I believe my fuse temp was a little low or the time was a bit short. Working against me, I noticed the mystery glass pieces have variations in the color. I went for it anyway and halfassed a schedule. It worked! The investment is a winner and the material did not stick to the glass. Next go will be with the proper known glass and hopefully half a clue.
Looks good, the non-mystery glass ought to work even better! This is gonna be cool...
