Scientific Glass Blowing

Cool little video. I’ve dabbled in scientific glass blowing in college and some later in my professional lab days. It’s always amazing what true professional blowers are able to make.


Very cool, thanks for sharing.

I used to do a bit of this for our chemistry department, back when we had a dedicated glassblowing lab, and it was a lot of fun. Very challenging, though.


Any chance you still have a small bench lathe for sale in that old scientific department you mentioned ?

Alas, that was 30 years ago and as far as I know, they closed down the glass shop probably 20 years ago when the guy I learned from retired.
There are some new manufacture glass lathes, even some DIY ones, but, pricey!
