Scott, dont keep us in suspense! I am assuming it is an electric melter.....Electroglass, stadleman, other ? What is the capacity ?

Larry,

Nothing so expensive. I is an Aim Wiremelter Furnace with an 85 pound pot.

I plan to melt either C4-gabbert cullet or Spectrum Nuggets. Have not pulled the trigger on that one yet. The crucibles are on back order so I will start it up with a 40 pound pot that I have already to to play around as soon as my glory is finished.

Stick with the spectrum if possible. It is a lot more consistent and the quality of the finished glass is excellent. I rent time from one of the NW distributors for them and it is all he uses in his electroglass.

Hi! Love the header here (could stare at it for hours), but I especially LOVE the photos of your pumpkin glass at the end of the blog here. And to think I nearly missed them! That'll learn me for being so delinquent on stopping by to get acquainted! Good to finally be meeting you!
