i am noticing i can not get a clean flame for the life of's always half orange and as soon as the glass touches it, it gets dirty...I am having a lot of trouble not feeling discouraged by this frustration. I think tomorrow I am going to get some mapp gas and try that.

if the flame still burns dirty, should I assume it is the torch? (devardi has a replacement torch on the way for me, i was quite stunned when they offered)
