Glass tech, Week 4

Our stacks of cut glass are now fused cubes..some neater than others...ready for grinding and polishing. Marcus had introduced us to the machines but today was a chance to get beyond a little small talk. A demonstration on each machine refreshed our initial introduction. A little daunting at times but getting more confident.

Equipment in the cold working room for cutting, grinding and polishing:

Flat lap or flat bed grinder
Diamond saw
Rotary hand tool (dremelesque)
