Hmmm... I'm jealous.  I must be doing something wrong with mine, Mark.  I
tried sand, glass bead and baking soda, and I had the same problem with all
three media.  It would work for a minute or two, then I'd have to start
shaking the pot to keep the flow going.  It got so annoying that I went back
to using my siphon gun, also from HF.

What kind of media do you use, and do you have any problems getting it to
flow?  I'm a couple weeks from doing a frame, so I'm real interested.
