So here is how it came about.

Yes, this may be slanted towards Bullseye Glass, but it contains some valuable information you should consider before choosing which glass supplier to use, and which COE.
Personally, something I gained from this video is the information that compatibility can’t be guaranteed purely by the COE. Other factors are involved and must be considered.
