Where did I get the idea for this right-angle mold?
I watched a glassblowing video by Lynn Dee Dinning at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wP_AD8FmTcU
During the video, in the lower left corner (next to the optic mold being used)
I saw (a tiny sliver) what appeared to be a mold made out of right-angle steel...

But I wanted to make mine adjustable in diameter (in other words, not welding the right-angle steel into only one position,
and with something in the bottom to create a foot with a pattern to match the pattern of the mold
(how the lines of some optic molds go to a point in the bottom, but even more so).
More like how the glass goes below and in-between the fins of my fin molds, to help create a nice foot with matching details.
