Using the Minimelt
In the Workshop
The Minimelt is perfect for prototyping ideas and for small production runs. You can set up and blow for relatively low cost from your workshop or garage. We do recommend that you wheel the Minimelt outside for use unless your interior is well ventilated or has good extraction. Your bench and work area could still be inside.
The Glass Hub glassmaking research and education centre has been using Minimelts for teaching since it opened in 2012 …everything from bauble blowing to advanced Venetian glassblowing techniques.
The Great Outdoors
Being able to blow glass outdoors is great when the weather is too hot for your workshop. The whole unit disassembles and can be packed into a small van so you can take it on the road with you. Useful for outdoor events and demonstrations, or even if you have to move house.
