New to this site. Been doing lampwork beads on a hot head for several years now. I watched Chad's tutorial, fascintated by his work and reading everyone else's comments about his nice "tut". I figured it's been a long time since I partied and the lingo must've changed some over the years...until it hit me that a "tut" doesn't have anything to do with a pipe or a spoon! Today I enjoy the craftsmanship of the pipe...back in the day, I'd have really enjoyed it! Thanks, Chad

You guys quit picking on Mincot.. Why couldn't someone make a "regular" kitchen spoon out of boro? Challenge anyone?

This thread has been kinda fun to read.. I was waiting to see how Chad tried to get around this one!! Too funny. A lot of drug paraphenalia are real pieces of art and sell just as that... pieces of art! I had a friend and neighbor that does "glass art" actually show me how to make one of these just for the technique. Threw me a curve when he started talking about carberators (sp). LOL I have yet to do it though. I want to do hollow beads and ornaments.....

Awesome tut, Chad and thanks for the input Beau and everyone else...

I've had several pipe requests - and not for any questionable use either. People collect the things. I tell them I'm not set up for that because I'm not real interested making them for others given the current legal climate... I've had some fun trying the tutorial however... It's challenging (but possible) on a minor burner!

I'm not trying to get around anything. I make pipes. They pay the bills. I don't care what they do with them after they get them.

Hey Chad - Thanks for that tut! somehow I missed it first time around, so I'm glad it got bumped. I have tried a couple of times from some written directions I found at thegldg, but the visual helps a ton! I think I know what I've been doing wrong now...will be giving it another shot this weekend. I don't personally indulge (I met my lifetime quota at a very young age ) but have a couple of friends who keep bugging me, and now maybe I can deliver!
Thanks again!!
Toni

I don't smoke anything at all. Legal or otherwise. I have never smoked cigarettes (watching two family members die of lung cancer from smoking will do that) and I haven't smoked other things for at least 10 years. I quit when I started playing pro hockey because of drug tests. I haven't picked it back up since then.

Ironic that I make pipes, huh?

I had no idea you played pro! Very cool. Who did you play for? I quickly became a huge hockey fan when I married my ex - spent about 5 years breathing NHL, and a little IHL too! Season tickets to the Ducks (quit laughing) and then LOTS of killer seats at the new staples center with company tix. I travelled a lot for one job and made it a point to get tickets to a game in whatever cities I could...I even went by myself in Chicago since everyone flaked out.

Kinda funny story - I started collecting jerseys and got myself a San Francisco Spiders IHL jersey. Just last year I saw them all in my closet and checked out ebay - I got $200 for that dang thing!

Oh, and yeah, kinda ironic on the pipe thing, but I bet they help pay the bills, huh??

I'm going to have to see if I can find my favorite picture of me and Teemu Selanne.

I played in the ECHL. They were the Roanoke Rampage the year I played. I broke both bones in my lower left leg and that ended my pro career. I was never really fast enough to be a "speedster" and I was never really a goal-scorer. I was mainly a fighter. So, lower leagues were about as high as I could go anyways.

Default Stupid question

You show how to pull the point away from the end but how do you get the point on the end? Or do you just melt the end closed?

Just melt it closed. Heat and rotate.

I have done plenty of them on a Minor, so on a Lynx it should be no problem. Of course, that is not the only diameter you can use. I use 22, 26, 32, and various other sizes as well.

I dindt see them either, but I will cover pulling points with pictures in my upcomming tutorial on blown christmas ornaments. I didnt read the whole thread, but a good pointer is.... before you ever start to pull,, make sure you are turning true and on center. take your time.

Thank goodness! I remembered your tut on vortex designs and decided I wanted to try it. When I went back to the post the pictures were gone! I'm still going to try it and hope I remember enough.

I think the photos were on his website, which (he said) is redesigning, so we can't see the pictures.
