Burner And Annealing
 
A Japanese burner and did he say Ash?

Yes he did!

I agree, he did say ash. I wonder ashes from what?

I'm curious about this thread title mentioning annealing. What did anything shown in this video have to do with annealing? The finished bead was cooled slowly in ash to prevent cracking, but nothing was annealed.

I agree, it would be more like us using cooling beads, fiber blanket or vermiculite.

I haven't seen a box under the torch like that before even on the Satake style torches. Man do I love that color palate. I can't handle one more COE though.

Ash is a great insulator. Makes sense as a vermiculite type replacement.

I am glad I am not the only term picky one. I like the options things like Annealing Bubbles or ash offers for slow cooling prior to annealing. I just dislike the term annealing for things that are not truly getting annealed.

Using someone's ashes to prevent thermal shock in soda lime, lead, or even borosilicate beads? Is everyone happy now?
