Default Propane vs. Natural Gas

Pros Cons?
how much gas could I expect to use in an hour of bead making? (trying to compare costs)

Really hard to say... What torch are you going to use, and at what pressures.... As for bottom line, NG or propane is probably the cheapest raw product/ingredient you will have to buy to sustain you bead work.

I don't know how much gas you'd use. There are several variables, like the brand torch and how far the valve is open.

But, if you have access to natural gas, I'd be looking at the COST difference between the two fuels. That is how I would decide.

I'll bet your natural gas is a LOT cheaper than buying BBQ bottle propane.
