Pete and Tom......

Thank you very much for the advice. If I could get a year+ out of my elements, I would be a very happy camper.

Before I switched over to nuggets, I was only familiar with furnaces melting batch; so, when someone told me that I would get a nice melt by soaking nuggets @ 2300, it made somewhat sense to me (due to my knowledge based in batch language). I guess if I would have thought about it for a second, I would have realized that one of the advantages of nuggets is the lower melt temp.

Oh well....I guess that is one reason why this board exists. Thank you Peter, btw.

I just can't wait for the day when my studio justifies me upgrading to a furnace where I can run Moly elements, instead of a wiremelter......err, wait....maybe I can wait.
