Summary

The problems are as various and as individual as the solutions. The problems: fishscale, black specks, and finding a steel that is both strong (high carbon) and enamelable. The solutions: using only the specified steel for a particular process and product; developing your own pickle system because “every pickle machine is different”; and encouraging frit suppliers to develop frits that can accomodate different types of steel and steel suppliers to develop steels that are easily enameled.
