I absolutely second the ventilation importance. I don't regret a penny spent on safety.

It's not something I've ever had luck with on a hothead. Since you can't get an oxidizing flame on that one it really limits how much you can control the flame chemistry.

For my hoses I was able to just cut the brass fitting off the hose with a knife and push fit the hose on the barbed fitting to the oxycon. I've got the same type of unit for oxygen.

Setting Up at Shows

How do folks handle setting up your torch at shows? I've got my first show coming up (wahoo!) but I don't know what sort of liability/extra safety precautions I should take. Any advice would be...

You'd still need an extraction system right at the torch. You don't want all those fumes from the metals in the glass wafting around your head before going out the top. Ventilation is something that...

Gerald, I hope some of the suggestions have been helpful as far as what to make with the last dregs of oxygen! Sorry for starting a discussion on oxycon setups!

That's fair. I've seen folks daisy chain them together to get some pretty serious results going, but it does get pricey fast.

You could probably get some stringer or cane prep knocked out for next time. (I'd say get yourself an oxycon and it will never happen again!)

Speedslug, good call on the mirror! I always get spooked when folks show up in the studio, not a great spot to be in with a 1.5" marble on the final punty!

I've got no experience in pre-mix torches, but you should be able to get a suitable tip on there. It won't be huge, but it will be hotter and more dynamic than a hothead.

It looks a lot like the smaller National hand torches. I don't see any reason it wouldn't work if you found some way to mount it. Carlisle already makes a bench mount for it....

I'd bet it was the temp. That spray can get picky. Also shake the tar out of it for a few minutes!

I'd try a coat or two of a matte clear coat spray on a mirror. Should get you close to the desired finish with little fussing about or searching. The frosting spray tends to make it just whiter...

I've got a chili pepper and I love it. Super easy to operate, good capacity for my needs, and really reliable. Haven't had it trip a breaker or any internal issues. It's been great.

I've got a chilipepper which is fiber all around. I really enjoy it because sometimes I need to travel with my set-up and I make almost exclusively marbles, marbles don't roll on fiber!

Double Helix Zephyr is absolutely my vote. I've been struggling with messy clear until I buckled down and bought some to test. Now that is all I'll be asking for as gifts from family!

Good call. The zephyr actually paid off. It's frustrating to make an implosion marble for an hour then not be able to see in it.

Dusty, sounds like it doesn't seem to outperform zephyr then right? I just ordered some zephyr to test out and when I heard about this I was kicking myself because it isn't cheap!
