Our Mayor wasn’t the only one with an alleged crack problem this week. Down at the studio we had a crisis of our own!
Last Friday we had a sensor failure on the furnace which caused her to turn off. Unfortunately, we had no replacement for it and it is tied directly to the safety shutoff so there was no way to relight our baby (safely)! Jesse and An tried their best to keep the glass alive with a blowtorch but it was a losing battle. All we could do was tuck her in with some insulation and wait for our replacement part.
The furnace dropped to about 540 degrees over the weekend which is a very bad thing. Very bad. The pot inside that contains our glass is not built to handle those kinds of drastic changes in temperature. The root cause of our crack problem. Once the sensor was repaired, we had the choice to bring the temp back up slowly on the off chance that the pot was still intact inside or replace everything again. Which would suck. We went for the slow temp raise. We’d have to wait and see if the allegations were true.
It took all week but we finally got our old friend back to temperature! And wouldn’t you know it? The crack was just in our heads! So to speak… Phew!
