    Demo & Install: Semi-Auto Tray from Taurus

    In this video Dane show you how to install and use the Semi-Automatic Floating Tray for the Taurus 3 Ring Saw. Make precision cuts with ease using the semi-automatic floating tray. This spring-loaded tray fits the Taurus 3 saw (sold separately) and features an adjustable tension knob allowing it to cut with just the right amount of pressure depending on what you are cutting. The magnetic angles make it possible to cut both 90° and 45° cuts. The floating tray comes with a special worksurface that replaces the standard Taurus 3 worksurface. Simply pull the automatic tray back, place your piece between the magnetic angles and then let go. It does the hard work of cutting for you! Ideal for production work, or just giving you a little extra muscle so you aren't straining to apply pressure. Can cut pieces up to 5-1/4" long. Must be used with the Slicer Blade (#57109 sold separately). ---- Semi Auto Tray: https://www.delphiglass.com/glass-tools/ring-saws/semi-automatic-floating-tray-for-taurus-3-ring-saw Gemini Slicer Blade: https://www.delphiglass.com/glass-tools/ring-saws/taurus-3-slicer-blade-kit

    Thanks for the info on the microwave kiln. I have used it with the glass turntable in & also set the kiln on posts. I was afraid that if I set the kiln directly on the turntable that it might crack it if it got too hot. Seems to work quite well! Having a lot of fun with it!

  • comments3 Jun 13, 2014

    @chrish31 you can leave the turntable in your microwave. I have a turntable and have not noticed that it makes a difference at all in my firing. I don't use posts myself but it certainly won't hurt anything. Good luck and have fun!

  • chrish31 Jun 01, 2014

    None of the instructions for the microwave kilns say if you use the moveable turntable or take it out. I have kiln posts that I can put the kiln on but do I use the turntable or not? One picture that I saw shows the kiln placed in the microwave on the glass shelf with posts under it but I don't know if the turntable is allowed to turn or should it remain stationary? I can remove the glass shelf and put the posts directly on the bottom of the microwave but I didn't know if that's the best way to use it.

  • Elizabeth B. Jun 20, 2013

    @Kathy G. An 800 to 1200 Watt microwave oven is recommended for use with the Fuseworks Microwave Kiln. This is probably why you're not having much luck with the 600 watt microwave you've been using. It is also important not to use microwaves that have a plastic interior.

  • Jun 02, 2013

    I just received my micro kiln kit and am using a 600 watt but nothing fuses. The paper browns but that's it. I start out w 2 min and then add 30 sec to 1 min after, still nothing. Can you help me out with what I'm doing wrong. Thanks.

  • kbrook63 Feb 22, 2013

    i have one of these but when i use the fuseworks dicro on black base it doesnt show updo you put on upside down i dont know what im doing wrong

  • comments3 Jan 23, 2013

    @dontfritFuse No, it is not recommended that you utilize a microwave that will also continue to be used for food purposes. We suggest that you designate a separate microwave for your planned fusing fun.

    @MarGon1, the microwave kiln is easier to use than you might think. It's great for making pendants, magnets and other small fusing projects. What kind of project are you hoping to make?

  • MarGon1 Jun 13, 2011

    Is that easy to fuse in the microwave?
