What Torch Do you Use?

Has this already been posted somewhere in the past? If so, can someone point me in the right direction? If it hasn't been posted how do I set up a poll?

Laura

Laura
When you start a thread go down to the bottom of the page and you will see a box about making the thread a poll.

Re: What Torch Do you Use?

I use a Minor....

As far as posting a poll.. I used to know how to do it... but since the forum changed stuff around a while ago that all seemed to change. (I just looked and couldn't figure it out.)

Hothead, Mini CC, and a Bobcat. Yep, I'm still using the Hothead for some things!

Next one on the list is the Barracuda!

Re: What Torch Do you Use?

Hey Laura.... Just looked again at how to post the poll.... Found it at the bottom of the new post page right above the manage attachments button. Check the box that says Yes, post a poll with this thread. Select the number of responses you want to use. I believe once you post it you will be able to submit the questions you want to ask in the poll.

Re: What Torch Do you Use?

Okay, so then can I go back to the original post and put up the poll? But maybe I don't want to, I love seeing not only what kinds of torches but how many some of you have.

BTW, I use a Lynx, couldn't live without it. Bill uses a Phantom and his ancient National 3A.

Keep those cards and letters coming.

Re: What Torch Do you Use?

I have three:

Hot Head - Virtually unused.
Nortel Minor - Used hard for the last 4 years. I like this torch for soft glass beads. Great for teaching too.
Barracuda - My current primary torch. I use it for both soft and boro work. I love this torch.

Next torch -> GTT Mirage. Must... go..... BIGGER...

Re: What Torch Do you Use?

I currently have a Barracuda (my favorite for boro) and a Lynx. Used to have a Hot Head, Bobcat, and Beth Bead Burner. Loved them all, passed on to good homes. :-)
