    Announcement: Re: oG Glocc Coma, we will miss you.

  2. Re: I still haven't learned to build a pipe but just learned about palladium.

    Oh lordy.... look who's back. Back again.



    I'd say we're about 20% disgruntled old timers who can barely hack it with glass, 30% hyped up kids who learned all there was to learn about glass in...

    wait... is that just a glass crutch? I mean, that's probably one of the very first functional things I made with glass in like 2000... if it's what I think it is... just a little 2" length of 9.5...

    Still like to know the swing.

    In a glass lathe swing is the distance from the center line of the bore to the top of fire carriage. This lets me know what size burners I can mount, and what size ...

    Can you give us the swing, bed length, total run out (tolerance), and other specs for the lathe? What kind of motor is it, what are the speed ranges, how is speed controlled, etc?

    Re: 3D Printed glass

    3D printed glass is absolutely a thing... I'm not disputing that.

    What I'm saying is that THIS: 90171 is not 3D printed, but loop stitched glass... I stay pretty up to date on 3D printing...

    Naw... just a guess, but Shapeways is probably the shop that actually printed it, if so, that much steel... probably $1200-1500.

    I get pretty frequent requests, but the price usually ends it. They're thinking about the $30 imports.... can't find a middle ground on that.
  15. Re: Ever seen Hurricane balls? Rendered by lampwork. Science meets art.

    Too fast to see much of anything until they slow down, then you see the spinning color discs, they look kinda neat, but only lasts maybe 4-5 spins.
