EVERYTHING FOR $19,500.00 ->>> O.B.O.

The furnace is a Stadelman. It is a 100lb capacity, 15w, single phase, 240... W/ transformer, s-type thermal-couples. The control box includes two controllers...one daily working and one over-heat emergency. This is not the hobbyist version of the Stadelman 100lber. I had Steve put in two extra elements for a total of 6. The furnace has plenty of power. I have it on a designated 100amp circuit. My entire studio is 200amps and there is plenty of power for everything. The furnace does show some use but it rocked until the day I turned it off! New pot and new crown is included. I used the Stadelman from May, 2008 to August, 2012, when my work dictated more volume was needed and I built a 400lb moly. (picture 114A)

The Glory Hole is a 55gallon drum with 2 stacked doors. To make the hole the 55gal barrel was split length-wise. On its side the bottom half is castable and the top half is accordioned frax. The large door slides left to expose the entire hole. The large door is square with a large opening in the middle of it. The second door rides on the large hole and slides left to expose the opening of the middle of the large door. The second door has a three sided frame and a moon shaped side to correspond to the Large Door opening. It runs on a Wilton-head with a venturi-blower hybrid.

You will see as you scroll thru the list or the pictures that there is blow pipes, hand tools, blow molds, large and small finishing equipment, etc. I also realized I forgot to include a great automated mold-boy for the molds. It is currently disassembled so I don't have a pictured.

Are you willing to part things out, or just selling everything as one lot?
