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

Actually, bronze is great to work with... it is between copper and brass as regards workability, and I use it a lot. Besides it's functional qualities, it has way more interesting cultural/historical connotations. Not sure where you get sheet metal out there... I end up buying 3' x 8' sheets of .032" (about 18-20 gauge) bronze from a company that usually sells it to builders and architects...

Always glad to see another patina junkie :D I am just heat colouring bronze, then sealing the surface with wax.

Yes, Don was at the Arts Centre... taught for a week. People lovely, he said.

We are going to be in Victoria again this summer. Don will be teaching a 1-week bookbinding course, and I'll be teaching 2 days on metal techniques that bookbinders can use to create book covers.

The organizers have asked me to see if there is a metal group on the Island that would be interested in having me teach something, to help them defray the costs of airfare. Any ideas about who I might talk with in Victoria or Denman?

Cheers,
Mary

Hi, Mary!

My husband, Don Taylor, was on Denman last August to teach bookbinding. I don't suppose you ran into him?

Beautiful work, by the way...
