The only place I can think of might be Terrapin Glassworks in Jaffrey. I know they have torch stations and I think they rent them but I'm not positive. Plus it's kind of far away.

Do you mean a silver-grey scum on the beads (reduction) or is it white and chalky (devitrification)? It sounds to me like you're talking about the grey schmutz rather than devitrification. Your kiln...

I don't think something as large as a knob should be batch annealed. I don't think it will survive. Even if it looks OK there could be internal cracks that might cause the knob to break in your hand....

In the lampwork world, it's OK to knock off tools. But knock off a bead and that's a different story. I guess it depends who it hurts.

I prefer graphite because brass grabs the glass and I don't like using beeswax.

I think I'd use Etch All or some other product made specifically for etching glass.

But some glass doesn't etch well. Was the glass that didn't etch Effetre?

Why don't you try it? My guess is it won't work and eventually it'll pop off, if it doesn't immediately crack. I love the bullseye colors but I can't handle that many COE's so I sold it all.

8 years ago I made all the knobs for my kitchen, laundry room and three bathrooms using the kit that Zooziis sells. I've had no problems with any of them. And they really jazz up the place.
