Default Re: door in progress

Cool!
Dave oringinally inspired me with the idea of a copper door. I was even thinking of cladding the entire dome in copper or brass. I still hesitate as scrap metal thieves steal everything around here that has copper in it. Crystal Meth? No thanks! As it is, I'm going to sweat my stainless steel chimney until I go to my grave.

PS. Dave, this doesn't mean I think you've got good ideas or anything

My wife never thinks I have good idears either.
Wuzzup wit dat?

Oh well...

Speaking of copper thieves..
I work for an electric cooperative. Around Christmas day several members of the "Copper Recycling Guild" entered the premises (under the cover of darkness) and helped themselves to hundreds of pounds of new copper.
And all for recycling. I guess they were helping the environment or something.

Yes Inishta, they are two pieces in each door (actually one outer piece shattered in the one door, and I replaced it with expanded aluminium mesh - lasted until the oven expired :-)).

What I am worried about is that this is a special type of heat-resistant glass - can one cut it like ordinary glass?

Cheers,

the heat proof glass is not necessarily hardened nor tempered, so it should cut relatively easy. I would contact a leadlight maker and get them to bandsaw it using one of their diamond impregnated blades which they use to cut intricate shapes. It should not cost much and could be done whilst you wait.
I have printed normal 8mm plate glass and then had it fired to fuse the ceramic ink and then the customer had to get 1/4" cut off one edge to fit the panels into their overhead dome location in a large Russian Orthodox Cathedral without problems!
