Oh my gosh, you're so cool and arty when you're all despondent about assessment.

I read the document you created. Very nice work.

I'm curious, in the construction of the beer keg furnace and gloryhole, what did you use the wire for?

When I build my little glory I tried using nichrome wire run through to hold back the insulation at the top of the hole with not great success, though the fiber formed a fired shell that kept things where I needed it. My door was more successful using the wire to hold things together.

I envy you having the ability to go do this in a school environment. My work was done mostly by reading and asking a lot of questions on various forums. I built a little 220 volt 10 pound pot furnace and a little bucket propane fired glory that I was teaching myself to blow glass out of. at least until the last power failure that left me with a frozen pot in the furnace...

It's been probably 3 or 4 years since I last picked up a pipe, though I've been thinking about it more lately. Especially with watching your journal.

if you are interested I can try to dig up the pics I've got somewhere from the early 2000/2001/2002 when I was first getting things going

nicely done, you have a lot to offer the craft. I'm very impressed.

same as you, sounds like :) i dunno why it seems to have worked, but sure has. i used nichrome where i could.

yeah.. don't. i am dagerously into 'write your own undergrad degree' and it's kinda scary. i envy doing it as a hobby - mind you that's where it all began... hmmmm.

I've been thinking about it more lately

heh ;) i call this a 'ganna' statement - "yeah i'm ganna do it..." - never gets done. ;) i'm pretty careful about saying things like that. nothing gets me more motivated than my own big mouth sometimes.

go out and do it now. why are you still reading! there really isn't any reason why you shouldn't ;)

if you are interested

_yes_ - is a duck the catholic?

I'm very impressed

!!! you fly airplanes !!!
