Charlie is a warhorse in Glass and an old friend. He builds very nice furnaces and has tinkered with recuperation systems for years. I like what he puts together and a lot of other people must as well since frequently when I sell a crucible, more often than not, it is for one of Charlies' units. They are all over the northeast US. Check it out.

These guys build Kanthal wire element furnaces. They are the most inexpensive thing out there I think although Thumb may have them beat.
I don't like wire element furnaces since the elements don't last very long. Their replacement elements are expensive and are better purchased from Duralite Inc Their replacement crucibles are better replaced by Engineered Ceramics ( moi!)
There are people who absolutely love these things and get very frosty when I pan them. I respect them and don't get it. So, they sell a lot of them every year so they must be doing something right.
So if you need a glass furnace that sells for about four Grand, give them a call. It's instant gratification. I just can't get excited.
As for the other equipment, I have looked at it but never used it. Maybe someone can give their polishing stuff a product review?

HUB builds beautiful equipment. Every thing they do is excellent. Corning actually calls HUB when they want furnaces built. HUB will rent you his forms for casting furnaces if you don't have the cash for the completed product. Great stuff.

This is the guy who makes the burner that I won't explain to anyone how they are made. You gotta buy one from Tom and cut it up. ( then buy another one when you find out how much trouble you just got into). They are very quiet, sturdy ribbon burners. I like them. For furnaces and gloryholes. Support small businesses.
