    They make all different sizes. They hold domes and slides. They are perfect. Wal-mart has them too. I use them in my shop. Got that from RK

    Fancy...I just made my own out of 2 items from the 99 cent only store...a wooden "dish rack", and a little wire basket that fits perfectly...

    [​IMG]

    Of course, that led me to building a bigger one...with lumber I got at HD...the bigger one cost 3 bucks total...lol...now that you posted a rotating one, I feel so inadequate...

    I feel like I need to start looking for a lazy Susan to make one that rotates...Now if I only had some slides and domes worth displaying...lol

    Looks like there are some worth displaying in the first pic. Nice job on the rack. I just liked the lazy Susan style of the eBay one. And only 14$ shipped.

    well specifically tree perks i suppose. not real familar with the other types but i just wanted to make sure you could do that kind of work. some blowers dont deal with the inner workings of the pipe with perks and what not so just wanted to make sure. if you do deal with tree perks or another type of perk you might recommend with lots of filtration whats your price range on something like that. preferably around the 2 foot size in height. clean glass nothing special.

    Well, you have an amazing collection, and I strive to get something like it gong too...I just can't pay lhs prices when I know the markup on everything is so high...think I might wander today and see if I can trade some sap for quality glass.

    I don't have a tree jig. But I make natural ones, plinko, inline, and downstems with multiple holes.

    Did you blow the 2 pieces laying in front the rack? IDK what the name of the style is, but I call it a sidecar in my head. I have been looking to grab one like it.

    Oh that's interesting! I want to see how it is done. Are you melting down copper and dipping the glass in it?

    They chemically break down and electrically reform onto the glass that is painted with a metal paint.
    thats a tub of sulfuric acid, copper phosphate, and Distilled water. Electrically charger with 1v

    can you use other metals for electro? Like a baller gold or platinum one

    Sure. Send me a lb or so of gold. Ill plate whatever you want.
    it takes a decent bit of gold to e-form. What would happen is I would plate the gold over the copper. A thin layer.

    Polyurethane tub? Why would you go and buy that when you probably have a bath tub at your house!

    It did feel like Jesse at Home Depot. Asking for copper/copper sulfate/sulfuric acid/5gal tote/alligator clips/rubber gloves

    my cart was sketchy to say the least.
