This may be a really naive question, but since I don’t want to worry
about it, here it is:
I use Oxygen and Acetylene and have the tanks in a small workroom on
the main floor of my house. Since I may need to move them out of the
house in the near future, this would mean the end of soldering as I
know it. I am thinking of trying to use a beehive kiln to heat the
metal, and then using a small hand held butane torch for small
soldering jobs like attaching findings etc. I am eager to try this
out to see if it will work. Is there any danger in using the butane
torch while the Oxy- Acetylene tanks are still in the room? There is
no evidence that they are leaking that I can detect, but I haven’t
used them in about 2 months.
While I am on this topic, I am wondering which small torch is the
best–which has the highest heat output, flame adjustment (if any)
and is comfortable to hold.
Thanks so much!
