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

"Hi nancy, So as far as I know, it is against Toronto fire regulation code to store and/or operate a gas torch inside a residential building. The space must be rated as "light industrial" to make it legal and then it needs to be re-insured…"

Torch at home studio in rented apartment, has anyone done this and encountered problems with their landlord

I have been working from home for a while now, set up to do both silversmithing and lampworking. I have a propane tank outside which I run inside to do my work. My landlord has informed me that he is uncomfortable with this and that we need to look into fire coding, laws, etc...I may be shut down but was wondering if anyone has encountered this and had any success in alleviating concerns? So far I have a note into the Office of the Fire Marshall but any insight would be greatly appreciated.NancySee More

"I actually just saw some copper sheet at Lacy's which is Queen and Church (55 Queen St. E). Not sure what the pricing is or what the thickenesses are, but they may be worth a call. Nancy"
