Missing items

I bought this today but it’s missing the fiber blanket.

I guess I need to figure out how to buy that separately

Not worth the $$$

This system just doesn’t get hot enough. I could even make a bead!

Worth the $80

I use the torch with regular propane and it gets plenty hot enough to melt the glass rods. Only complaint is that the safety glasses are plastic, which would melt should any hot glass embed in them and really, the kit should have heat resistant gloves.

No glass rods!!

I went and bought this at Hobby Lobby on 1/4/20, went and bought the map-pro gas so I could begin trying this kit, there were NO GLASS RODS! Now its Saturday and of course hobby lobby is closed on sundays. So disappointed, 100.00 on something I can't use

made some great stuff!

it works awesome! lol and the person who said "it doesnt get hot enough", you supply your own source of heat it does not come with the product. Get some map gas and it works great!

If you use mapgas instead of propane, it is way better! As for the ones complaining about the glasses, maybe use welding glasses. It doesn't bother me.

Great for beginners

I bought this kit 6 months ago. I work with it for 2-3 months then I upgrade the torch. But I still use some of the equipments. It’s perfect beginning to lampworking and see if you’re going to love it or not. I absolutely recommend it!

great kit

I purchased the kit in store for $75. I love it. The torch is adequate when used with mapp gas. I made over 20 beads with the glass provided and the first bottle of gas. Some really beautiful glass!
