furnace types a poll

I'm trying to get a handle on who uses what for their glass furnace. I may have to revise it as I see results.

I would have preferred "wire melter 40lb"

My furnace is most definitely NOT a "kiln". To me that infers something built for another purpose (i.e. pottery kiln) bodged into thinking it's a glass furnace.

Thank you. Please keep voting people. At this point I wish I could get the lurkers. I'm looking at patterns and will explain soon enough.
