It can be a little unwieldy sometimes, but it works like a charm. Most of the time I like that I can remove it from the window so that it can be locked.

Yes. It passes the smoke test. I'm always amazed when I watch it get pulled into the hose.

I think that in the end it was just too cold that night. I went back and did some tests. I used the same pink, Uroboros and murrini and then I used Electric blue, some other murrini and Zephyr. I...

I double checked. It's 104 murrini. I get almost all of my soft glass from Frantz, so I am confident that it is as advertised.

Sadly, this is all one rod of clear. I melted a big glob onto a punty and picked up all 5 murrini at once. Once I had a decent shape I added the pink. :( I'll have to try again.

It is the 104. That's the only kind of rods I get. It's why I considered the problem to be the pink. I don't really use them as they're kinda chunky.

Cracking Question

I made this the other day and I'm not sure where my problem occurred. I did use my annealing bubbles instead of the kiln. I'm not sure if cooling was the problem or glass compatibility.

That's a great idea. I currently have it on one of those three shelf wire racks. As it's a regular guy from Glass Hive I think that might work.

Thanks for the great idea! :)
