if you are. I could use some cullet if it fits 96. Have a 4 pot electric color furnace. Looking for a milk white.

I have been told it is very dangerous to use so I am trying to avoid it. Is that the consensus with the board here?

I've heard the same thing . But at my age and good ventilation not much of a concern for me anymore . I just want A good strong white that I can dip a hot gather. When I was making my own batch I loved my Fenton white. I have a dead on 96 milk white formula but I just don't want to mix batch anymore . So I'm using Spruce Pine . And while the clarity is not as good as the old batch I used to make myself it's convenient and does a nice job . I do hate buying white rod at such high price and I miss having a pot to dip on. I do know that when you first open the furnace of milk white you don't want to be breathing it in right off the bat . But @52 I don't really care anymore LOL .

George will fry his electrical elements if he puts a fluorine in the pots. If you think it no longer matters at 52, I'd reconsider that.
