    Default two piece multi-section sherlocks

    I'd like to get $35/ea. I make all the lined tubing, uv in the lined tubing. Pocket-sized sherlocks.

    I also make fume iso spoons with schott and a linework cap for $15/ea.

    Anything with reversals should be $50.

    Nice work . Nice price .

    Don't mind nomads comment just because he had locked himself into a box with his view of pricing and work does not mean you price is wrong .

    Anything with a reversal worth 50

    You have to understand he went from a cc to a bravo I think and runs on two cons .

    Stays in his comfort zone and rarely steps out .

    Just trying to help. I have made them for $35 before in California when someone else paid for glass and gas etc... I could make 3 in a long day. I think itís too much work for the money.

    But you forgot about my national 6-b and OxyCon . I used that after and before the cc.

    I do them now occasionally for $65 a Sherlock bubbler and they sell. Slowly but they sell.

    We donít have a lot of reversals around here really. People think they are played out for the most part.

    I have repeat customers from 10-20 years ago that still buy them.

    Itís true I am concentrating on 4 bubbler designs and 4 spoon designs because they sell.
    Actually 6 designs I show at trade shows and that is it.
    I canít keep up with the work.

    Not sure what the torch has to do with it. You can only get the glass so hot without boiling it. So a hotter torch should not make a difference really. Not to mention the bravo is a very hot and concentrated flame. I love it. Just as fast as my cc was. The cc used a k tank every 2 days though. So that is $80-$120 week oxygen bill. Versus the $15 every 3 week propane bill I pay now for the bravo.

    The cc had maybe 1/4 inch larger flame and a premix center fire. The center fire on the cc make muddy fumes.

    I have made like 15 reballs in my whole carreer and it sounds like I made them in about the time it took nomad to make one. Nomad, I dont even think you put any kicks in your reballs, so why do it take you the same amount of time it takes you to make a bubbler??

    There's no picture there.

    Also, are you saying it takes you 8+ hours to wig up three balls and make three spoons with them?

    I'm baffled.

    Takes 2 1/2-3 hours to make a Sherlock bubbler with two inside out reversals fully worked. $65 is a steel. Thatís like $20 hour.

    Yeah I worked 11:00 am-7:00 pm in California. I took a smoke break between bubbs maybe an energy drink too.
