Mark, that was harsh.

Is there actually a ban on leaded glass, or is it just not being produced anymore?

I am still regularly sold leaded glass. To be honest, I wish the distributor would quit sending it to me. I like the hotter fires, and the lead free finished glass seems to be a little tougher (less likely to be broken by install). The toughness could be a direct result of more even heating, I suppose, but it's a big plus in my book. The biggest pain is having to turn the fires up and down depending on what glass I'm using, but it's no big deal. No need to raise prices unless the price of glass goes up. ;)

Plus, I love the didymium glasses. Got mine from Phillips Safety through my employer's fastener supplier for slightly cheaper than advertised on the web site.

I'm super excited to have found this message board, and plan to check back and post regularly... We're all in this together :)
