Allcraft in NY (Brooklyn, I think) has a charcoal block that is
supposed to last much longer than usual. It’s not in their
catalogue, you have to ask for it. I also think that the
ordinary kind works better and lasts longer is it is in a metal
box, top open. I guess if it has a top, after use it could be
closed, and perhaps it would stop burning more quickly.
I’m going to go to a Metal Arts Society Demo Day at Pasadena
City College today. I just joined and this will be my first
event! I’m really excited, and looking forward to meeting
everyone. If anyone from Orchid is going to be there, let’s say
"Hello". Ketarah, will you be there?
