    As far as I know. People do tend to use sconces as decoration rather than burning candles in them. It also depends on the type of scronce it is. A scrolled sconce, i imagine, would just be for decoration. Hope this helps.

      The sconces I make use tea lights. They have been perfectly safe.
      Tea lights come with there own little cup to retain the melted wax till it is all bured up.
      You can get a candle cup for regular taper candles. Some have a little brass ferrule on the end.
      The most important thing to remember is never leave the candle unattended.

            I agree. They're much better than scrolls.

                The reason I'm asking is I am making a pair of sconces, and am considering acrylic mirror as part of the medium in making them. The candle would be approximatly 4 inches away from the acrylic, and before i go into production mode on this, I was wondering if my idea is stupid, and I should just opt for wood in its place. Glass mirror is not an option because of color, I want a colored mirror. Thanks, dale

                  Now I have the picture. Sounds like a great idea to me.
                  I hope you get some good answers on here.

                    Most of the heat from a candle will rise.
                    I don't think you would have too much problem with acrylic 4" away from the flame.

                    Maybe you could just run a test with the acrylic for several hours before you make the sconces.

                        I wonder if their effort to offer better quality products may have something to do with it. Seems like they want to market themselves as something more than just a cheap tool supplier. Maybe reducing the number of things eligible for the big discount coupons is part of a campaign to change their image....

                        by Bill Wilson
                        I've owned both tilting table and tilting head saws. My current saw is an EX-21 (pre-Chinese made version) with the tilting head. I have to say that for beveled cuts, I much prefer the EX over my previous tilting table saws (Craftsman and Dewalt). I think a lot of it is the rack & pinion angle...

                        Just a random annoyance . . . . Anyone get frustrated by the Harbor Freight ads that say no exclusions, then you see the details and see "for items under $20", or worse yet, in super small print, "Can not be used for: Atlas, Bauer, Central Machinery, CoverPro, Hercules, Predator, compressors,...

                        And no annoying dust collection holes, for little pieces to catch on, right?

                        Since tilt arm style saws are my personal favorite . . . I can criticize it right? I hate the freaking dust collection mechanism on my King, and prefer the table on the older Green EX that didn't have that....
