I am setting up my home jewelry studio in my finished basement and
need advice on 2 issues:
- Setting up my oxy-acetylene torch where there is a carpeted
What is a good material for covering the carpet to reduce
flammability? Could I use something like galvanized metal or another
type of flooring that I could purchase inexpensively at my local
hardware store and lay over the top of the carpet? Taking the carpet
out is not(unfortunately) an option.
- Building a ventilation system
What type of systems do other metalsmiths and jewelers have? What is
adequate for one jewelry designer making a small amount of work
every day? How did you install the ventilation systems?
Thanks in advance.
