Re: What Torch Do you Use?

Well, Rosebud was kind enough to set up a poll for me, what a nice thing to do, thank you so much.

I'll bet this is going to turn out to be fun to see what everyone uses. Here I thought everyone was like me and loved their Lynx, but no, look at all the different torches.........wow....

Re: What Torch Do you Use?

I started on the minor and then went to the Mini CC which I went absolutely ga-ga over. But I am using it with liquid oxygen so it is running at maximum performance! I'm going to be trying every torch available at the Gathering this year because I want to work bigger! hehe! Paula

Re: What Torch Do you Use?

I voted for the Mini CC, which I started using about 3 months ago and ADORE it, but I also still pull out my trusty HH every once in a while. There are some things that only the HH will do for me (getting fabulous colors out of ocelot spots frit for example), so I will keep it around. I am already thinking ahead to my next torch... I hear boro calling my name... it's a distant cry, but I can still hear it.

Re: What Torch Do you Use?

Lynx and Lovin' it! I kept my HH mounted for several weeks after I received it, thinking I might want to switch back and forth. Once I started on my Lynx, I never looked back! I still haven't tried boro, though, and I wonder if I'll want something bigger when that time comes.

Re: What Torch Do you Use?

I upgraded to a mini cc about 1-2 months ago from my HH, I love it, but am finding some things I liked better on the HH.

Re: What Torch Do you Use?

I love my Bobcat (I'm keeping my HH even though i haven't really used it much since getting the HH) And I think about getting a second torch. Maybe a Lynx?
