well, you can see from prior post that they can be introduced in the factory or they can be introduced in your shop. Bubbles are inevitable in the factory. What should not be tolerated are stones. I don't think there's any fixed benchmark. Some colors are harder than others. Getting in a hurry causes problems in both places.
Try simply doing it with a tank of clear and you'll get a notion of how hard it is even when you can see the bubbles. Put the clear rod in the color box and see what sorts of things occur. Clear witness pieces are useful at every level of production.
Where are we going and why am I in this basket?
