I purchased Smith Little Torch from Rio some years ago, and have been tremendously pleased with it. I have used it with propane and oxygen, disposable containers. Though you burn out of oxygen pretty fast, my silver (Argentium) soldering has been mostly a pleasure to do and the result has really not been bad.
After 7 years in Texas, I have moved back home to Norway. I soon realized that the selection of jewel crafting equipment to purchase here compared to in the US is like comparing North Korea and the US. Don’t even get me started on the prices here!
And I have absolutely no one to ask, partly because of Covid but mostly because I don’t know where to even start my research. The fittings on European and US tools seldom/never overlap, so I wonder where I eventually can purchase a Smith Little Torch or a similarly easy, flexible torch (that doesn’t look like or feels like I am going to wield a tankship with it) that I can use here in Norway: This is a tool I need to trust, mistakes are fast very expensive or very dangerous. Thank you in advance!
