    Properties and Principles of Glass

    Thanks guys. Looks like it's a much bigger operation than I previously thought.

    Properties and Principles of Glass

    The telescope lenses at Corning were probably convex or concave or whatever its called. I imagine those would need to be absolutely flawless in every way which may be tougher than pouring a solid block.

    Properties and Principles of Glass

    The annealing can be avoided fairly easily right? Pour the glass into the mold inside an oven then cool it very slowly? I saw Corning did that. I read an art sculpture was made of glass about those dimensions which is the largest ever but turned up no info on it. It's top secret. I just...

    Properties and Principles of Glass

    Can anyone tell me if glass can be melted and poured into a large quantity say like a 10ft^3 area without severe fracturing or anything which may weaken the overall structural integrity. Also how strong would that block of glass be? Could you crash a car into it at any certain speed without...

    River Finds Two

    Again back when I used to snorkel. 2010-2015 MA/NH/VT rivers, streams, creeks, whatever had the magic current. Even swift water with boulders, the bottles get tucked into the rocks. I love those spots. 2-10 ft of water.

    Biggest find ever

    Line up the insulators and take a few pics straight on. Don't slant the camera from above... take photos that are like dead ahead straight on. Otherwise it can be difficult to ID.

    River Finds

    Where I am now... I guess the fire dept. will fill tanks for divers. And I'm going to be stationed here for a few years anyway. How about rebreather or hookah. Hookah wouldn't be good too many snags like you said. Think I would need to be certified to buy and use a compressor. Rebreather would...

    4 clear insulators and metal attachment found in woods

    I don't see a hydro communication line using tramps. they usually ran 2 wires. Sort of overkill. But I'm not an expert on the subject.

    River Finds

    I have SCUBA gear but getting air around here is another story. So I've always free dove usually with a 5mm suit, belt and fins. I've pulled bottles upwards of 15 feet but I'm at the point where doing that all day, I'm nervous about shallow water blackout. Also I cant stay down long enough to...

    River Finds

    Empire Mineral Water. Ill post a pic when I get a chance. The thought was that they were gravitating stoppers for awhile but then documentation showed them to be Hutch bottles.

    River Finds

    I dove for bottles once upon a time. Here's some of them. All taken on snorkel in MA/NH rivers/creeks:

    Sunny Dive Day Finds

    Yeah divers leave insulators behind a lot. When I got into insulators 5 years after I started with bottles, I knew where I had been seeing insulators all those years so I was like a kid in a candy store. Turns out one of my holes was worth $1400. Four porcelain pieces.

    4 clear insulators and metal attachment found in woods

    Is that an old rotted pole in the picture?

    4 clear insulators and metal attachment found in woods

    There was a highway or old road, most of them had lines sometimes set back a little. You could try and follow the road at that distance and you might find more tramp brackets, then you would know where the pole holes were and where insulators should be
