I just used my sabre saw. I haven't purchased a band saw or plasma cutter (yet).Are the arcs where the tip holder part is cut with a plasma or bandsaw?
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.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.
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.Just curious does she do any other welding or metal working, like TIG, MIG etc..?
She said that she would wear her safety glasses in the future. Thanks for all the concerns and personal stories.I have to agree with everyone else about the glasses, so tell her "alot of people you know worry" maybe that'll help :P
