I just got myself a little FuseWorks (I think) microwave kiln for
fusing glass. I would appreciate getting some pointers from people
who are already doing this.
Thanks, and Happy New Year to all,

Eleanora, here is a video that demonstrates raku firing in a microwave kiln=
In 2008 I ran many glass fusing tests in Paragon's MagicFuse microwave
kiln. The manual that I wrote includes pointers:
Fusing glass in a microwave kiln is easy provided you check the glass
visually (wearing safety glasses). Firing by time alone is more
difficult, because the time varies depending on how how the kiln is from
the last firing. Voltage fluctuation can also alter the time.
