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

I was a stained glass artist for about 25 years before I switched to filigree jewellry and I own and use two knitting machines! Do you sell your wool?

I would love to learn plique-a-jour. It would add another dimension to my jewellry, I think. Too bad I live so far away(Quebec). :( Do you give lessons online?

Right now I am working with 16 gauge Gold-fill wire that I flatten to make a frame for the fine silver filigree wires. What is the gauge of your 20 karat gold wire? Did you get help with your Filigree project? Would you like to learn?

Recently about 2 weeks ago..finally got my website underway.
Need some good advice from folks who have a site on how to become more visible on the web. Can anyone suggest a few good sites that offer promotion or do just that.....and of coarse then there is the fee. ...which shouldn't be tooooooo outrageous.

just returned from the yukon and walked the trail of the gold miners. what an adventure. after working with silver , copper and brass for 25 years , I will finally try some gold. Purchased a very small amount of fine wire directly from the source and will attempt to do some filigree work. does anyone have some good advice for me. Metal is 20 K. and very soft.
