1/16" is a bit better for smaller beads, when it comes to stringing them. But seeing as my beads tend to be...

Normally I fill my tank 2 or 3 times a year (depending on how much I'm torching). On an average I get in 10-12 hours a week. Tank PSI is between 7 and 10. I'm on a Bobcat.

I'll agree with Cynthia on the Devardi burgundy, and even better, it's one of the Devardi colors that does not bubble, crack or otherwise become "frit on a stick" for me. Very easy to work with.

I work it at about the same temperature as I do the...

When I do a cola soak (100% cola), I leave them in overnight.

Reminder -- regular cola only -- diet colas do not work.

While I can't speak to CIM stringers in particular, I know in general the smaller the diameter of the rod of clear, the more problems with scum, bubbles, etc.

To get good clears, you generally...

I did the same thing at first -- tried a single-dip 5/32 and it didn't fit over the end of the Pandora (although it was OK on the Troll).
