Jeff Babbitt, Scientific Glassblower

The University of Kentucky Chemistry Department's glass shop has been run by Jeff Babbitt for almost 25 years now. Jeff does a variety of things -- from simple repairs to the construction of complicated vacuum line systems. Babbitt's job is a highly specialized one and as Jeff himself says, "a lot of people don't know about it." Here is a glimpse into the life of Scientific Glassblower, Jeff Babbitt.
