I hear what you're saying there, Pete. Another crucial difference is the needs of the full-time -- dare I say professional -- glassblower and the weekend warrior, hobbyist, or the guy who wants to fire up the melter long enough to blow ornaments to sell to coworkers.

The former clearly needs to know the elements will work consistently (and at high temps) and will stand up to the glass. The latter likely has the time to putz around with element changes and other maintenance routines.

I know I just typed a chapter from the Great Book of Duh, but perspective is important.
