Does anyone have or have used an EZ Torch from Otto Frei
I’m looking to buy my first jewelry torch for use in my home studio
(also known as the spare bedroom!) and I’ve looked at the EZ Torch on
the Otto Frei website. I’m tempted because the price is right and it
doesn’t require an oxygen tank, making it easier to use and set up.
Also, since I’ll be using it in my home, I’m concerned about safety.
If you’ve had experience with this torch, I’d be interested to know
what you think. Is it durable? Is it something I’ll quickly outgrow,
or can it do a range of jobs that make it a “workhorse”? My teacher
recommended the Prest-O-Lite, but I’ve had no luck finding it. The EZ
torch seems to be very like the Prest-O-Lite, thus I wondered if it
compares favorably. Have also looked at the Hoke and the Meco Midget,
but for now they are out of my budget range, although they seem like
good products. Any advice would be appreciated.
