Default Glass tip Information

Hey everyone, I decided to compile all the information in one single post. After this I won't go into the glass tips anymore.

Our starting line will include 4 - 5 designs of tips with about 3 - 4 color variations. The tips are stronger than pyrex, durable They fit snug into KM, Razan, Nammor, Caravan(Grand) hoses with no glue, grommets, or any sort of holding device.

Tips will cost around $15 - $25 depending on complexity, and depending on how well they sell at first. I'm setting up not really contracts, but negotiations with some local HP vendors. So keep your eye out, I'll let you know when we start mass-producing.

Thank you again.

No ETA as of yet, but we're trying to get it rolling in another month or so.

How will they fit Grand/Carvan hoses if the tip is already glued in?

15-25 bucks is a good price range IMHO, seeing as you have to pay for the glass tube, the color rods, propane and O2, torch set up and the other equipment, labor, and electricity to run the annealer

Well they are made for Nammors and Razans, but im sure that it would fit if you were to gently pull out the glued hose tip....shoot, if these end up looking cool enough, i might just glue it in there for extra support

haha pass. OP said it would work for the Grand... I was just wondering if there was a certain way of doing so besides "ripping" the heavily glued tip out.

I'd try warming it up a bit with a hair dryer first, that should soften up the glue a bit and be easier to pull the tip out

No bud, thanks to all of you guys for your support and input. Without you guys we wouldnt know how to go about it. I wouldnt know what shapes and designs you guys really like, what colors. I wouldnt even know how to make them fit without HP and the support of HP members. You guys are fantastic.
