I thought there was a difference from indoor torching and outdoor torching in eye protection........ no?

Oh, I forgot to mention, I do also have a medical condition that aggrivates the light sensitivity--chronic lyme disease--but don't wear glasses except for reading--I've got "convergence disorder"--but no regular all the time eyeglasses, so no "added UV coatings" for me

There is no difference in the requirements for eyewear indoors or outdoors.

Luna - from your original post, you made it sound as if you chose to wear dark sunglasses in order to work with glass outside. Your additional comments make all the difference in the world...

I have a question about linking to posts here on LE; I link to posts here all the time if I think there's something someone might be interested in. Is this or is this not acceptable according to the site owners and the TOS?

This is the only "rules" for LWE usage that I could find....

http://www.lampworketc.com/forums/fa..._useragreement

As long as the links are within these parameters I see no prohibition on linking to this site....

Dale: I guess it just comes down to: What part of "no" do you not understand?

It's in the PM I sent you when you asked to copy my words. Check your PM's. I can forward another copy to you if you wish, however, I do not post the content of PM's in public.

Also - just because you "can" doesn't make it "right".

I like your creative interpretation on what is right. Seem to change with what ever mood you are in....

I did honor your PM, I did NOT post your document or your name on Art Glass Answers, I merely put up a LINK stating where I felt some very important safety information could be found on LAMPWORK ETC. It seems to me you put your ego above peoples safety in this issue, that's deplorable and a slam on the glass community.

I seem to remember a PM to you to request to have certain documents removed from Art Glass Forum and my request was responded to with emphatic "no".

And within minutes of that response from you the following notice appeared on Art Glass Forum...

http://www.artglassforum.com/forums/...ead.php?t=1874

I suggest you cease and desist...

Dale

Glass Alchemy Green Dwarf - Just a note, you might mean Corning Green Dwarf?
The Green Dwarf I know of is sintered glass, not normal furnace color, and came in the form of 4 inch "D" profile rods. It was only sold by Northstar, and has been discontinued for years. I don't believe that Glass Alchemy produces any color by that name.

The only time people should wear dark sunglasses is when they have an existing problem with light sensitivity, either due to medication, injury, or bodily function. Don't wear dark sunglasses just because you think it's cool.
I believe they are also recommended for driving...
Then, I had a girlfriend with a schizophrenic brother, and he was really weird about eye contact so he wore dark glasses all the, even inside at dinner. I don't know whether he thought it was cool or whether Mike would have.

Dale - you know, this is getting old, and I'll bet people are getting tired of it, I certainly am.

I'll just make your link worthless, that's all.

I'm glad it has been agreed upon to put this argument to bed. Thanks to both of you. I appreciate it.
