Default CBS Dichro - the best

Just in case somebody wants to know in the future, CBS Dichro on boro substrate is excelent. It does not burn out. I had a sample of "generic" boro dichro form a supplier and I was about to swear off dichro when I went to the dark side. I just tried the CBS dichro and it performs just as they say on their website.

I"m finding that whether or not the dichro strip/scrap has been fused makes a huge difference. I have some CBS that I got from a vendor (that I trust is CBS) and it will flake off in the flame if I don't (a) preheat it or (b) run a fusing cycle on it first.

I think some comes prefused and some doesn't. FWIW.

Glad what you got is performing great for you.
