Wow I am new lol I've never seen a telescoping saber loose in a bubble.

Nice job with the obviously effective method. Can't help but wonder if anyone has quickly yellowed a bubble trying to de-frost it though.

Thanks Chris for posting your proven method. clapping

Clear non Eco Bulb is the old standard incandescent bulb here in North America, that's pretty clear. But I'm not sure what a "D or E" rated bulb is? It probably a UK or European designation? It's probably like a 60 or 100 Watt bulb here in North America (something that will produce a good bit of heat)?

The rating indicates how energy efficient a bulb is Clint. In the UK the scale goes from A (most efficient) to G (least efficient). So a bulb rated D or E will give off heat aswell as light. I have some incandescent 40 Watt bulbs I use for reptiles rated at E purely because they help to warm the enclosures.

BTW great result Chris. You may find the frosting comes back though, it has happened with a couple of my moc's.
