    Default Stand for Acetylene/Air Torch

    Attached are some pictures of a stand that I built for my daughters "B" size Acetylene tank that she uses with her Acetylene/Air torch for Jewelry making as part of her metal working class at Western Michigan University. I designed a place for the all of the stuff that she uses with the torch. I have also included two pictures of her silver soldering some silver earrings. In the first she is heating the earing to melt the flux. In the second she is using a titanium pick to transfer a drop of solder to the joint. Its been a great learning experience for me as well.

    That's a nice bit of metal fab, looks well thought out. And I love aluminum, soft, easy to work with, and after you're done welding; you're done. No paint needed.

    Please get your Daughter to wear safety glasses. I have a scar just outside the iris on my left eye from a solder splash.

    Don, very nice job on the stand, looks like your daughter really enjoys what she is doing. I agree with Craig though, see if you can get her to wear safety glasses, maybe even goggles, we only get one pair of eyes in life.

    Say Bert, they do in Oahu and Honolulu. I think the instructor is even a Hula girl

    That's one sweet looking tank holder! Are the arces where teh tip holder part is cut with a plasma or bandsaw?. I have to agree with everyone else about the glasses, so tell her "alot of people you know worry" maybe that'll help :P

    I'm surprised that's such a large torch for jewelry. I thought it would be one of those micro victor sets i see at the LWS all the time. I think it's really cool to see women into welding, brazing, soldering etc... it's just not that common and it's very cool. I can imagine her being out on a date when something breaks on the car and she has the wrench from and the car just about finished by the time he finds the number for Tipple A (AAA) LOL LOL

    Just curious does she do any other welding or metal working, like TIG, MIG etc..?

    I remember when i first met my wife, I had been called to a buddy's house to double check a motor install before it was fired up and she was there helping. I remember saying to myself in a joking manner "she looks like brittney spears with a ratchet and some grease on her hands"...make up still intact and all
