Re: more progress pics of 3" internal TEE LM/VM

Re: sourcing a sight glass and another Q

like red said i've had a 3" plate dics for my window for quite a while. they never realy get hot so i don't think pyrex type is needed. i sandwiched the glass between 2 "gaskets" of flour paste and tightened the whole lot together. any leaks were fixed with more paste. simple, cheap, and it works. e...

Re: glass viewing window?

anything will work if you can clamp it tight. hell a bunch of spring cips would work. i just like to machine sometimes. copper is tough to machine though. bottom section of the window should slant down so etho won't pool near the glass. that's 1/4" pyrex glass. got a bunch of it. i use rye paste to ...

hawke i think it's cut on a wet saw and then preheated to ~ 1000 deg f then picked up and worked in the gloryhole. we can only do it with red stripe beer bottles as there ceramic decals will hold up to the heat of reworking. i'll have to get a few bottles and try it. gman
