How to Score and Fire Polish 12mm Tube

Learn to score and fire polish a 12mm blow tube.

In this video we will show you some of the

most basic techniques a glass blower will use.  Scoring is how we mostly always crack our glass rod or tube.   One thing we have learned from some old timers is that it is wise to get the score wet after you score and.  This is good as it helps to stop any dust that may get created and holds it there.  I guess this is what it does, any one that knows the technical side please let me know.  We at Elev8 Premier love to fire polish all the ends so there is never a chance we put the tube in our mouth and cut ourselves.  Those fingers are not made of steel either, so we find it just good to fire polish it all.
