There are a lot of us here using fuel/oxygen torches, as well as a number of people working with Hotheads or similar torches. I've been working on a Minor for several years and just switched to a Bethlehem Bead Burner. Soft glass only -- due to studio constraints, I have to use an oxygen concentrator rather than tanked oxygen, and I don't have the patience that it would take to work boro on a small torch with a concentrator.
To those who question the real value of the Web: Sea slugs. Now, please fall into a respectful silence, and don't speak again until you understand why you were wrong.
