>I want to try stabilizing some burl for pen and stopper blanks and have a few questions. I'll be using a glass Gallon bottle but not sure what material for stabilizing.
1. Any suggestions for stabilizor? I have some Nelsonite on order but don't know if I'll use it.
2. What amount of vaccum should I try to pull?
3. How much vaccum will a normal glass bottle accept prior to imploding?
4. Why once the air is pulled out doesn't the vaccum suck out the stabilizing liquid?
5. Any hints or cautions?
