I've just a little note about chipping and twin-scaling.  

If you haven't done it, try it.  

Follow the instructions about cleanliness and you will get great results.  If you have a bulb to spare, don't be put off by this technique.  It works!  It's really quite exciting to watch little bulbs form from simple slices of bulb and plate.
