Sill Height

I just purchased a 200lb Denver furnace and It seems to me that the sill height is a bit high at 38 1/2". This may be because it came with casters. I can always remove them, but before I do I thought i'd ask the crew.

That's the same height as our HUB furnace here at Salem State. Great height for me, some of our shorter students struggle.

just take your blowpipe and see if you can easily touch the bottom of the pot. You don't need to go deeper. If you can't, pull the casters which are illegal in a lot of places.
When I first got to the Shanghai shop, it drove me crazy that the furnace was way up in the air and you actually had to get up on a platform to gather and then jump off. I didn't really blow much there at all since my role was to alter all the formulas and make things compatible. I built the color furnace to my own needs. The factory owner kept shutting off the gloryhole when no one was reheating and I did put a total stop to that.

An interesting place to watch short people struggle is in any grocery store when it comes to the top shelf.

Thanks for your help. I'm going to try it as is for a while. I am rather tall so I'm sure I will not have an issue, but if it ends up being tough for our shorter blowers at least I have an option to easily drop it 4 inches.
