    well i observed it on both pads i had. one was just clear glass. the surface became very rough. it was odd. it looked bubbled. as if gasses had bubbled out of it. i dunno, just trying to figure it out.

    Yo man, just noticed in your posted vid that you're angling the flame straight down on the rig when heating. I used to heat it like that and the female cracked slightly on one of my sets; I speculate it might have been the result of the combination of the frosting on the joint causing small micro-fractures and the heat being applied warping those micro-fractures. Now I angle the flame at like 45 degrees toward the nail and move it around slightly to heat evenly, while at the same preventing the flame and subsequent heat blast from getting near the female.

    Also, ins0 it sounds like you are "shocking" the glass. Give it a minute on the ones that have not been used, IE: dont even let the flame hit it for a good 20 seconds, once the glass has accepted the heat, then you can shove it right in the flame for some good heating.

    Does anyone else experience a lot of nails breaking (other than Inso)? I am looking into getting a dome but I don't want to go through a lot of nails.

    I use a glass nail as a glow rod and have experienced this as well; well not sure about the bubbles but it became rough and almost looked frosted... I will try to take pictures after work.

    I abuse the nail as well, heat the hell out of it, leave it burning a while [a minute easily] and it took about 2-3 weeks of heavy use to get this way.

    I still want to try an oil dome, to me this just means I should pick up a few nails if I get one.
