All I was asking from vendors and distributors is that they be upfront and honest about what they're doing. One of them PMd me and I'm grateful that I know a little more about how it works, but I...

So the price was lowered just because you mentioned it was too high?
Goes to show how random and out of place their pricing politics are. Every time we dare say that maybe $60-85-90/lb is a little...

Rant about CIM prices

How can a pound of glass be priced at $55 here and end up at $25 there is beyond my understanding. You suppose you get a bargain because of a permanent ongoing "sale" but somewhere else the real...

Shawnette, I went with IndieMade as well because it's easy for blondes like me. You don't have to figure out website building, it's done and well done for you.

I buy my 1/16" mandrels in 12" length because I tend to bend them easily and that way I can cut off the bent end and keep using it. I retire them when they're about 6" long.

About Powder Pink, it seems to me that the paddles should be swapped, the color of the old handmade stuff is pinker-orangey-ier than the recent machine-made 262. But that's just me and my monitor ;-)

All of the above, but I'd say organization is the most important to me. My ideas will be lost if I have to look for the right components. And to me, organization means space. I have a small desk...

Odd lots are notorious for varying within the same batch, I have over 3 lbs of Orange Sherbet and I'm pretty sure not 2 rods yield the same shade of orange. I guess it depends how much of the core...

Consistency seems to have become difficult to achieve in glass production. I don't know if it has to do with raw materials or processing, but I have noticed it as well. It's especially noticeable...

I don't. A lot of beginners buy Devardi products/glass, and beginners often lurk for a long time before they register with this forum. Low post count doesn't mean much to me.

Yes, I'm surprised they haven't been called out by their shipping service, whoever they use. It's really idiotic and it's putting the whole business at risk.
