Glass doesn`t need the high pressures needed for welding.


The Minor will run on 1/2 lb propane.There`s no need to run above 5 propane/10 oxygen.I use that for boro and work much larger than beads.When I work soft glass I usually drop my propane down to 2 or 3 lbs.Some times I drop the oxygen to about 7 lbs,sometimes not.It depends....It might be the kind of glass I`m using or how I feel that day

Remember to run you oxygen at least twice the pressure of your propane,but it looks like your welder son already told you that
