    Mason jar cracked?

    It could be a flaw in the glass. The temperature of the wax will not matter as long as the jars are not cold. Real mason jars are designed to be immersed in boiling water but I have broken them when my jars were still cool.

    Pre-warm the jars. Pouring hot wax in a cold jar can cause it to vrack or break.

    Telecommuters Insurance

    They probably would accept the candle makers policy but that policy is a bit expensive. I am hoping for something cheaper.

    Telecommuters Insurance

    No, there are no files kept on the computer and they insure the equipment. Just liability, it seems. Like if a delivery person tripped and got hurt, I guess.
  5. This is a different sort of insurance problem than product liability which we usually discuss. The company I work for allows staff to work from home, but requires us to have liability insurance to protect them from some third party issues. I guess it is an overabundance of caution since we are desk workers, we have no products and no clients. We process warranty claims on a computer. My problem is this: I own my home but due to living in Florida and having a very old house, I cannot get a rider on my homeowner's insurance for a home office. Since I do not rent I cannot get renter's insurance either. A commercial liability policy looks like it costs as much as candle product liability. Does anyone know of any lower cost alternative? I would consider this a very low risk but so far I have not come up with anything. Thanks in advance for any ideas.

    Help with gilding a lily....

    If you have an antique sword I would not do anything to it. You will probably hurt the value of it.

    You probably have to go mail order. We once bought a gold leaf kit and it included that special glue. But real swords are not made of silver and would probably rust not tarnish? Krylon may be a good bet!

    Welcome back! Why does it have to be real silver?
  13. I had good results with lx wicks in 4630 but that wick sounds awful large. What is the jar diameter?

    With or without the Leprechaun?

    I do not know how many men buy candles but it seems they might prefer no leprechaun or the impish kind. Maybe that is not important.

    With or without the Leprechaun?

    I like them all but if you have to do just one, I would go with #2.
