If you do ever go into a factory setting after being a studio glass worker (not that I recommend it) you'll learn really fast how differently things are done. Consumables are eaten at a much faster pace. Having a pot or tank last is not the highest priority. Getting the product right is the main concern, and sometimes that means cranking stuff to 11 to get the desired results. Gotta break some eggs to make an omelet, and some omelets require more breakage.

I've heard a lot of people that seem to not be able to wrap their heads around the physics of a belt lehr. Yes, you can make glass and properly anneal it in as little as 1-2 hours.
Temperature and time.

*** yeah, thin enough, yes. Great quality, not so much I recall how sweet it was to cut well annealed sheet glass compared to the fast annealed stuff. Just no comparison. It's true of sawing stuff as well. It just depends on how much it matters if its well annealed. Schott sold, and I think still sells coarse annealed and fine annealed glass.
Where are we going and why am I in this basket?
