I have talked to Tim a few times...Hes a young genius to be sure. loves his ellectronics & I miss his abrasive wit on the old metal forum. (most hated kid on the internet LOL) I knew he was planning to make those as "kits" but he went off to colledge & i haven't looked him up for a while.
Classic, what a small world. A kit for that would be great. That would make it within reach.

Nice one on making your own crucibles. Would love to get there eventually. What burner are you using? It took us 18 months to build this furnace, so yeha, don't i know it...

i know, gusalina.
does she have a brother name sue?
LOL, no but she does have a brother called Leaf Sun Fairy River Peace.
Her name is Augusta Belle, we didn't see Gus coming when we decided on the name, We thought the short version would be Augie, but no Gus or Gusty. She is such a Gus head, it suits her to a tee.
