Richard Huntrods is on a distinguished road
The glass finished cooking and squeezing, so last night I had the first ever Tin Shack Invitational Blowdown...

Allan Gott, Randy Kaltenbach and I spent from about 7:30 to midnight blowing beer mugs and other vessles with the first glass from my furnace. If you're interested, pictures and blab are on the website...

As for the glass, it is *perfect*. Crystal clear, no bubbles, cords, seeds, etc. Came out of the annealer looking fantastic!

In keeping with the topic of this thread, my next post will be a detailed description of my process for making Spruce Pine batch in my wire furnace.
