Re: What Torch Do you Use?

I use a minor with tanked O2 but have been yearning to upgrade a bit since my beads are getting bigger and bigger and I want to try some other glasses. I've been thinking a Barracuda will be the next step but ... well I can't even afford to go to the gathering so - feel sorry for me???? smile.

I also have a hot head I use for demos but otherwise rarely used because of the mapp gas cost.

Re: What Torch Do you Use?

Oh great thread! I'm upgrading from my hh and so far it's between the mini cc and a bethleham piranha. I know I'm going to want to do boro soon so that may leave the mini cc out and I see those of you who have it are already thinking of upgrading so that may just be what I needed to see to scratch that one off of the list.. I think for a while I'm going to be using tanked oxy(...little nervous about that...) until I can afford the concentrator. Looks like the majority of you like your minors. Can anyone tell me how they differ from the bethleham piranha?

Re: What Torch Do you Use?

the Mini CC does small boro easily. Just set the propane and oxygen a little higher so that you get 7/8 inch cones. You will want a bigger torch for the fat rods though. Paula

Re: What Torch Do you Use?

I have a hh, a mini cc and a lynx. I use my lynx most of the time. My next torch will probably be a Cuda.
