That does sound like a clever GH door setup. Do you know if he tends to run it so that the lollipop door re-closes when he's not actively taking a heat? Or just leaving that door open once the piece has gotten bigger than 2 inches and only using the barn doors.

I'd worry about losing too much heat from having the barn doors a few inches from the retaining ring with that setup, but if the pneumatic door re-closes when you're at the bench, it addresses that problem nicely.
