I have recently gone back to setting up my basement workshop (after a
bit of a layoff) and I had a couple of questions on set up. I haven’t
used my acetylene air tank/torch in a while. Is testing the
fitting/hose for leaks enough…or should I get a new hose set up.
How would I know if it wasn’t ok to use anymore?
I don’t have a lot of space (bet you haven’t heard a jeweler say
that before) and don’t know exactly where to put my trinket kiln…I
have a large wooden (home-made) bench and that’s it. I have
everything on one bench (mill, polishing cabinet, soldering area,
vice etc) Is it ok to put the kiln on sheet metal (with sheet metal
on the wall behind it as well) on the wooden bench, or do I need to
get a metal area exclusively for the kiln (it’s one of those small
beehive type kilns).
Also (sorry), now that I am working, I think I can actually afford
to take a class My local craft center doesn’t have anything coming
up that looks new. I am very much thinking it would be fun to go to
New Jersey (thanks for the suggestion Mr Walker). Can anyone make any
other recommendations? My jewelry looks like this kstardesigns.com
and I have a keen interest in granulation.
