    So I recently broke my joint off my 14mm Dabuccino with a my enail.. Does anyone have any recommendations for glass blowers that I could send my piece to? Hopefully reasonably priced but a known reliable glass blower. I tried to contact Evol Glass but it seems like they're too busy to do little side job repairs. Any help will be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

    I wouldn't go through GBD unless you have no other options. I and a few others have had pieces develop cracks for no reason at all (never bumped or jarred in anyway). Also the joint on my piece from them is very thin which leads me to believe they use China glass, definitely not something I would want on a high end piece like a dabaccino. Asking a LHS that deals in high end glass is probably your best bet and then you wouldn't have to worry about shipping either. You could also try @redglassgallery, a member on here, but I'm not sure if he does repairs or if he is too busy right now either.

    @Kief @clouded vision Thanks for the recommendations. I'll probably look into messaging redglassgallery or look for a LHS like you guys suggested. Do you guys have any idea if Dementia Gallery is good with repairs? I'm not really sure of the local head shops and only really know of Dementia.

    if you are looking for a repair to put it back to original condition you will need to find a shop that does sand blasting ( I don't )

    when they fix that top area the frosted part of the cap will burn off and will need to be re blasted

    I also had a good save experience with SSFG. They are among the nicest people I've ever talked to, let alone had business transactions with. :tup:

    They're way over on the East Coast though...
