EZ Torch, Orca cleaning

Hey there!I'm a pretty new silver smith! I have just started up a little work bench of my own and I bought the EZ torch. It has been working really well the last few months, but this week the flame has started to surge and sputter. Tonight I was just about to anneal a piece of silver and I went to light the torch, It made a fire ball and the flames fell back running down the handle, I turned off both knobs but the flame didn't go out until I blew it out! so after I was sure the flame was out I…See More

Lets talk about torch systems.  I want to purchase a torch so I can set it up at home for silversmithing and goldsmithing.  I called Advanced Industrial supplies today and they strongly advised me to NOT set up an acetylene/air system (the same system I use at the studio I go to) in the house and that even in a private garage it would not be advisable.  Surely there must be smaller and safer systems out there.  Unfotunately the only ssytem  I have learned on is the ACB tank (acetylene/air) type.

 

What torch systems do you guys use for silversmithing/goldsmithing?

 

Does anyone pout there just use a simple propane tank with and extension tip perhaps?

Hi everyone, it will be good to network.
Comment by Victoria Sanchez on March 30, 2012 at 8:40pm

Although not currently in Alberta I'm glad to be part of this group and contribute where I can!! 

Comment by Rosalba Politi on March 29, 2012 at 10:42pm

I think it would be great to share resources such as:

1.  companies where one can buy quality gemstones, silver, etc in CANADA.

2.  Schools or classes offered in ALBERTA.

3.  Professsional organizations where one can network

4.  Sharing of ideas etc.

Great Rosalba - We're hoping to find someone keen for each group to get things going! let me know if you need any help. I'll be sending out a bit more info in the next week or so.
Comment by Rosalba Politi on March 29, 2012 at 8:18pm

I think this is a great idea to have it organized by province.  I am an aspiring jewellery artist.  I would love to network as I plan to do this professionally.  I have started already to freelance my skills.
