No, no! You really should post this in the gallery. Not everyone comes to this page and people who are new to glass (or even 'old' to glass) should see what is possible.

The number of hours is kind of irrelevant, up to a point. Mine has well over 27,000 hours and still running strong. I don't know for sure how a dirty filter will affect purity, but it darn sure isn't...

I have the same issue with some photos turning on their sides. No worries.

That looks like a great vent set-up. The only thing I would be concerned about is the idea that the intake at the torch...

I would think setting up a rack in front of your kiln and sticking the rods in there partway would be much more space efficient. I really don't have room for a portecana (?) on my bench.
