Hello Fellow Artist,

Thought I'd be nosy and pop in to see what's happening around here.
Getting into Scientific Apparatus Fabrications but always looking in all corners of the earth (or net) for any and all knowledge or experiences I can find, absorb and suck up.

Can I pick your minds? lol

Eyewear appropriate for the type of work and glass you will be doing.

Fully agree.
IR & UV glasses / goggles.

I've always been a person for safety, hurts too much not to be.

Safety First!

I already have PPE's of this nature but thank you for mentioning the eye protection subject.
All too often people neglect this aspect in everything they do and then they wonder why they ended up getting hurt and a $$$$+ medical bill.

Eye sight and fire isn't something to take light heartedly.
Safety and awareness is the top 2 operational protocols in any field or interest where danger is lurking around every corner or path we take and just waiting to get ya.
Can you say, Murphy?

Hi John - this site is not as active as it used to be but there are several groups on Facebook that are very active and could probably give you some good feedback. The TorchTalk group might be a good place start.

Hello Patty,
Yeah, that's a shame. Unfortunately I've noticed this craft is fading into the past as sadly as that is, just about entirely across the entire internet and out of existence.

FB, LOL.
I've always stayed away from FB since day 1 because of all the drama.
Well, yesterday I did create an account and wasn't having any luck finding specific groups or people with knowledge of this craft but do remember running across a dead end link to Torch Talk so didn't give it a second thought.

Just went and looked.
Your correct, it appears they are the only really active group I can currently find.

Thank you

Since I'm already here I think I'll stick around and pop in from time to time.
You folks seem to be kind, laid back folks without all the drama our lives are surrounded by.
Never know, maybe I can help somebody else out or share some experience and knowledge.

Like I said, I have a wide range of interest and hobbies.
Never know what I'll be dabbling in at any given time.

You are very welcome .. glad you found it!

This is a wonderful place to visit and full of many years' worth of great information. Just not as much traffic as there used to be.
