Tungsten Probes on Handle

Tungsten with Wood Handle


Tungsten is an amazing high temperature metal, which unlike stainless steel, is less likely to melt or burn up in the flame and is less likely to stick to the glass. An ideal metal to manipulate glass by dragging, raking, feathering, or swirling the surface. Can be used to make air bubbles, poke out unwanted air bubbles or poke holes through the glass. Available as a straight sharpened rod or with the end bent for easier raking. Tungsten metal rod is 4-1/2" long
