    Are the arcs where the tip holder part is cut with a plasma or bandsaw?
    I just used my sabre saw. I haven't purchased a band saw or plasma cutter (yet).

    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.
    The Smith Silversmith Jewelry Torch is the same one that is used in her class with acetylene/air. She is using the smallest size 00 tip. The oxy-acetylene torches such as the Smith "little torch" are very popular but have a small hot flame. Her teacher says that they are actually harder to use.

    Just curious does she do any other welding or metal working, like TIG, MIG etc..?
    She hasn't got into Tig or Mig yet. Her two studio classes require a lot of time and keep her busy. Her other studio class is silk screening. Her last major project was a 3,000 piece stained glass window, which was 5' x 5' that she soldered, but that was done with a soldering iron, not a torch. Attached is a link to the finished work. It is actually a large flower.

    I have to agree with everyone else about the glasses, so tell her "alot of people you know worry" maybe that'll help :P
    She said that she would wear her safety glasses in the future. Thanks for all the concerns and personal stories.

    Nice stand. I like that you added a place for all the accessories. Makes it an all-in-one carrier -- unlike my Victor portable O/A tank kit.

    Try Linekona School or Art Academy or whatever they're called these days.

    That's a great looking stand!

    On small torches: I got a Meco Midget last year and I'm really impressed with it. It's bigger than a Smith "little torch" but smaller than the jeweler's air/fuel torch. You don't really need the temp of O/A for most jewelry work, but it's become my go-to torch for small silver brazing projects and working with thin gauge materials. O/A lets you do some things that aren't possible with just air/fuel. (I don't endorse smoking - the pack of cigs under the torch is just for scale.)

    My cat's name is "Murr". We named her that because she doesn't meow she just says "Murr". She is my constant companion and follows me all around the house. When I am on the computer she takes a nap on my desktop between the monitor and the keyboard. You are correct, she is very curious. When no one is home she sits near the window and pays attention to everything going on outside.
