    I am talking about making a reversal but I am sure I could make 10 sherlock bubs in a day with a reversal in each one

    Do it then! Thatís a bunch of money for sure.
    I do wrap and rake at that speed on a good day. But kiln space is a premium.

    If you can do 10 w&r's in a day, I'm certain you could bust out 10 fumers with a wigged section or two with practice! Keep on it brother!

    nah, actually he still looks slow as fuck and full of shit. I do much larger numbers than this. I just did a three hour session, and I have two fumed banger hangers with attachments and about ten spoons with more work than nomads all damn day, three or four were even wrap wrakes. I dont make push bubs currently just because I have not felt like it lately, but I make ten banger hangers a day with a pie of spoons on the side almost every day, and thats why losing this 2000$ worth of glass in the last two days will not put me out of business. How many other people on this forume that have been blowing glass and learned on their own with the internet can stand an unplanned two thousand dollar hit for a week and a half of work. Nomad may be an enigma, interesting and a legend on this forum but he is not living up close to his potential, and he damn sure is not out working or selling me. Anyone who thinks different is welcome to come stay with me for a week and see how a true hustler gets down. And I earned that self confidence with blood, sweat, tears, burned skin and lost time with my family.... so seriously, suck it ps I fucking own nomad skill wise because I do get out of the box and push myself regularly

    well. I have a few mild mentally handicaps, and its hard for me to tell. It comes across to me alot of times that he is picked on so when he gets the chance he is smug to a person he thinks may be on a lower level than him on a glass blower. I dont have the mental restraint to not say how it lets me feel. it would be alot worse if I had no restraint at all. sorry to everyone

    I can do 38 spoons in a day. What the hell are you talking about?
    I was talking about Sherlockís and none of these people read enough of the thread to understand what it is even about.

    Or they are jealous that because of supply and demand I get $65 each and I sell all the bubblers I can make.
    I actually donít make that many spoons anymore.

    Things have been good for me for the past 10 years. No problems really.
    I admit that a little medication helps.

    Actually I have a bag of pills I take with me now. Mostly due to physical ailments but I take a nontherapeutic dose of antidepressants. Thatís it though as far as that is concerned.

    I used to have some good anti anxiety medication but I take it all the time when I have it. So I got cut off by the doctor.

    Now itís mostly my high triglycerides. Itís twice a day medication but I forget about it and take it once at night.
    Iím at risk of stroke or heart attack I am told.

    I personally believe it is harder to blow glass than work at mc Donaldís and I resent the Industry for the low wages.
    My mechanic gets $100 hour. I have twice as much college schooling as he does!

    Then get an actual job nomad and blow glass as a hobby. It’s absurd that yo resent and industry because it doesn’t fund your life. I mean I guess I get it. I resent the NFL for not letting untalented guys like myself not play. SMH. The world doesn’t own you anything. The reason your mechanic gets paid is he has skills that matter.

    Glass blowing is not essential to the customer. When they have spare cash they may buy a piece.
    A working car is essential to most people’s lives. He can charge what he wants.
