Hey all,

I am looking for some pointers/tips for raking. I understand that you need to just barely catch the glass with the rake, but I am having difficulty when going all the way aroung the bead. I end up digging way too deep and pulling half the bead around the mandrel. Is there a trick or is it just practice?

Hi Chris, the trick to raking is making sure the glass is in its "just right" state. Too soft and you rake too much. To hard, and not enough. You really hit the nail on the head. It's a practice issue. Eventually, you'll learn just when and how to rake depending on the affect you are looking for.
