Re: can i see your work area?

I generally clean only when it becomes unbearable, but at that point I spend an hour or so getting everything in order.

Works well enough.

Re: can i see your work area?

Hi, I bought a small piece of very stiff foam for upholstering and cut it into the oblongs for my arm rests. Then I laid the foam on a section of wood and then covered it with the leather and stapled it to the wood.

The wood sections are easy peasy for a do it your selfer. I went to Home Depot and bought a 6' board of real nice finished wood, already sanded and ready to paint. I think it was about 6" wide and 1" thick. Then I cut it into same length pieces like you see in the pics.

Here is the fun part, after you cut the wood into pieces you take the pieces to your work bench and pile up 6 pieces on top of each other and then add the padded rests and pretend you are sitting at your torch and pick up a rod and mandrel for pretend torching and then subtract or add wood until your arms feel just right on the bench.

I had my DH watch me to make sure I had my back straight and we adjusted my chair, the shield and the arm rests until we got it perfect.

I ended up using three pieces of wood under the armrests so 4 pieces total on each side to get the correct height. We then used wood glue and clamped them together and used the silver foil tape from Home Depot to secure them to the table ( I can move easily if I need to) and VIOLA"

I like these because I rest my whole forearm on them and have my wrists free to move. Resting my whole forearm took the weight off my shoulders.

We did this when I couldn't torch after tearing my rotator cuff in four directions. I had to do something to take all of the weight off it.

Re: can i see your work area?

We've just completed the setup of our work area. I think we did good. The vent system moves 810 cfm. Thanks to everyone who shared pictures here, this is a very valuable resource for new people getting ideas.

Re: can i see your work area?

This was my studio in BC. I've moved twice since then.
I miss the ease of putting the pipe in the window and the concentrator outside.
I slid open the window and put in an insert with louvers, holes for the vent tube, concentrator and gas hoses.
When not in use the insert was removed and the window shut. Simple and secure.
