Hey Frnaklin That space between the burner head and burner port opening, is where you get the secondary air from. That is necessary for better flame chemisrty (HOTTER Flame) and at the same time it keeps the burner tip cooler.
With the pot up on a pedestal like that, you donot need the elements so close to the floor. It would also save you from doing what you have to do now.
Re-buld the floor, more like a cach basin for runaway glass and the heaters are high and dry.

PS That pot looks familiar.

Nice to hear from you Charles. Yes see how well I kept your Precious pot. It’s a real workhorse. I wanted to make a maintenance lid for the top to seal off the elements but it makes gathering vertically more difficult. I had to make the opening wider to get space to angle the pipe a bit more.
Have to do multiple gathers. I will try to drip less glass outside the pot.
I need all the wires to keep a good watt loading so the challenge is to add a row on top.
