What does a Warm-in Worker do?

Reheats blown or pressed glassware in furnace to fire-polish glassware and make it malleable for further processing: Clamps snap on hot glassware, grasps snap, and inserts glassware into furnace opening. Rotates ware to heat it evenly to ensure retention of its molded shape. Withdraws ware from furnace when it is heated to an orange-red color. May remove or add clay to furnace opening to enlarge or reduce its size to accommodate glassware being processed. May adjust fans to control ventilation that blows fire blast back into furnace and cools snap handle.
