Yes, a minor on tanks is very nice. You will be able to work boro beads and pendants into the 1 to 2 inch range easily. My wife has done bigger.

I would not want to try to use a foot pedel with a concentrator. Especially the ones that could power an outer flame would be way too expensive to risk damaging.

I will also recommend Smutboy's foot pedels. I got one with my Mirage and it is great! It makes using a two stage torch so much easier.

You might look into a Cheetah. They are supposed to run on 22 CFH which is just over 10 LPM. They make a nice bushy flame all the way down to a very fine point.

I have thought about putting a lip on the front of my metal tables that I am setting up in the new shop. This should keep most of the things that fall off on the bench and off the floor.

Do not crack it, I would open the window around a foot at least. You might want to just open it all the way if it is a standard window.
