I use a Hothead. So I work with mapp gas. I plan to upgrade to a bigger torch soon. I will use Natural gas and oxy. If you would like to give me any good info please feel free. I want a torch tht has a pin point flame and a bushy flame. Not sure what torch that is yet still searching.

There are a lot of us here using fuel/oxygen torches, as well as a number of people working with Hotheads or similar torches. I've been working on a Minor for several years and just switched to a Bethlehem Bead Burner. Soft glass only -- due to studio constraints, I have to use an oxygen concentrator rather than tanked oxygen, and I don't have the patience that it would take to work boro on a small torch with a concentrator.

Midrange Plus here, on oxy/propane temporarily, planning to go back to oxy/natural gas when I move. I use any glass I can get my hands on....Moretti, Bullseye, and boro of all kinds. Welcome!
