One thing I had not mentioned earlier is that I set up a small mirror so I can see if my wife comes up behind me.

What with my vent fan running and my head phones on jamming to late 60s and 70s rock and roll, I never hear her calling me and when she touches my shoulder I jump.

Jumping or flinching with molten glass on a stick in one hand and a rod of freshly melted glass in the other is not highly recommended.

I also learned from Bear Foot Arts youtube videos that having a small mirror angled so I could see the underside of the flame helped me a lot because I seemed to have a depth perception problem after a few minutes at the torch.
