    Does any one know how to thermal bluestone? Have some caps for a pillar and would like to thermal the edge.

    • [*]Wet the areas for flaming
      [*]Use a torch with a rosebud end
      [*]Apply heat roughly 3" away
      [*]Concentrate heat in center; stay away from edges and corners...too much heat will easily blow the corner off or crack an edge
      [*]Stone will start to pop
      [*]Be careful because bluestone pieces go everywhere and are extremely hot and REMEMBER to wear your safety gear
      [*]Practice on scrap piece....it should sound like frying bacon
