I have two questions:

1. We are attempting to resurrect a glove box that has not been used  
in more than five years, and I have no recent experience with glove  
boxes.  Where can I find information about exhaust requirements,  
especially after the regeneration of the catalyst? What other safety  
considerations I should be aware of?

2. We will be equipping a renovated Organic teaching lab sometime in  
2009 Any thoughts on the use of Thermowells versus the Glass-col type  
heating mantles? I'm not thrilled with the idea of sand in the  
Thermowells to make one size fit several sizes of rbf. We use  
semimicro scale, 100 mL rbf max.

Thank you.
