Thanks guys. Certainly not an original idea, but I have done this a few times with a pretty good success ratio.

Been a while since I’ve made slides and was winging it with the video. In a way I’m kinda glad the first one didn’t work out. Shows how it’s not a perfect method every time. I agree probably too much heat. Funny how the second one dropped off with heat/cold/heat. Never had that happen before!

Cool tutorial. I've see a few different ways to do it but they all seem to deal with the hot/cold method.

Nice to see. Nice jig.

That first one had too much heat, FYI?

Be careful with that torch, Carl!   Pretty good methods and results.
