Relaxing a fisheye
- August 10, 2012 at 3:59 pm #9846
So.. I ended up with a fisheye after doing a contour fuse. I did some reading and am hoping this will work. My piece is 12.25 inches round, One layer with rod dots creating a spiral. Now I have put the piece on fiberboard 1/8 inches thick. The program I am trying is
1.150f to 300 f hld 15min.
2. 200f 1225f hld 60min
3. AFAP 950f hld 60min.
4. 150f 800f hld 10min.
Will this relax the eye? Input is very much appreciated.August 10, 2012 at 6:14 pm #12637August 11, 2012 at 2:55 am #12638Hummingbird HillParticipant
If you find something that works, please post. I have one I would like to remove with minimal damage to the piece also.August 11, 2012 at 1:14 pm #12639
oh well, I waited for the temperature to rise to1224F then used my dental tool to put a small hole in the bubble. It relaxed. There is a slight ripple in it now so, will have to think on it. May just incorporate it into the design. Will see. Doesn’t look the way I wanted it to hwr, it may just turn out to be a happy accident.August 12, 2012 at 3:42 am #12640crackedglassmanParticipant
Hi if it has a ripple you could try to refuse it, or add a chip of glass and then refuse it.August 12, 2012 at 1:47 pm #12641
Yupper! Ground up some glass yeaterday so as to fill in the blank space.
Going to Corning Glass Museum then vaca. Will get ‘er done when I return.
Thank you for your suggestions. TT4N
