Glass Blowing
    #2118011 - 11/17/03 09:02 PM (14 years, 3 months ago)

Since OTD is closed i guess ill try my luck here. Im really interested in learning how to blow glass pipes and such. I'm aware that it is an expensive hobby and very frustrating but I would at least enjoy learning about it. Does anyone know of any websites or any other sort of resourse that would be a good starting point? thanks a bunch.

Maybe you could look into sugar blowing. It looks like it would be a good way to get some practice on a similar medium.

Actually, it's very easy to isolate a super producing sclerotia strain.

Follow the strain isolation technique on Let's Grow Mushrooms, and then select sectors early which are brown in color.  By the second or third transfer, you'll see stones developing, and this is only about 1 month after the original swipe of spores on agar.

Now, take each stone and move it to a new dish.  Soon, the mycelium will grow out and you'll see fresh stones developing, and if they're good strains, the sclerotia is forming long before the mycelium reaches the edge of the plate.  Pick strains which form four or five stones within two weeks and use these for your grain masters.

i had a few post in OTD about glass blowing and getting started. if it ever comes back, do a search for glass or torch by my username, see what comes up.

to learn properly, you should get an apprentiship. they range from $1-5000. but you get to actualy learn.. learning by yourself if a bitch, trust me on that one.

On a mission to prove that the truth gets you no where.
They tried the truth, It didn't work. Then they wrote the bible. 

Only the foolish fear the inevitable.
