  • I'm down with that definition of glory hole, but I do wish they'd change one or the other definition. Otherwise, how's a bear to keep track of which one is intended?

  • Yes.

  • Ah, glassmaking parlance! Pure rudery.

  • Unless, yarb, you're speaking of a hole in the side of a glass furnace that is used to reheat glass being fashioned or decorated; or a separate appliance for reheating glass. :-)
