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

Prior to this I spent many years in College and University. I worked in Government offices, did a lot of online and print publishing and honed my skills as a "Receptionist." Essentially, everything I learned (spent!) during my academic years was probably money I could have put into what I love and excel in now: Creating jewelry!

However, my love of the Arts does influence some of my designs so I suppose it was not all just bad Coffee and Long lectures on Campus!

Natalie
