I know this has been discussed before, but I could use some help
with a decision.
I have been atttending a metalworking class for several years now,
where I have been able to use the soldering equipment, as well, of
course, as all the other tools. I have many tools at home including
a flex shaft and tumbler, and I am getting to the point where I want
to do some soldering at home too, working with silver, copper, and
brass. I do not have a dedicated workspace for a torch, and would
like to start out with a butane torch to do some fusing of fine
silver wire and small soldering jobs (e.g. bezels, rings, jump
rings) and annealing. After reading reviews on line and some of the
postings here, I have kind of narrowed my choice to 2 possibilities:
A Blazer GB2001 or a Jumbo Max. Does anyone out there have any
specific recommendations for one of these over the other? I would
appreciate any help you could offer.
