The glass is the same as Spruce Pine, it is softer than Fenton.
Thanks. I'll pass this on to him.

Will you speak to general quality? What's your assessment, seedy first day, fines out after? Are you running into any stones or striae?

Also, does anyone do any kind of dip tests during the melts? I've been following our batch melts carefully since March and wonder if there are any parallels to be drawn.
