I agree with Scott on the 14k white gold /palladium. I've been using
it for about 8 months and you can actually grow prongs with it. No
splatter @ all.( Like Scott said you GOTTA try it ) I myself use a
Crafford laser 7000 , I compared them both , both machines are
excellent . But I like mine better . I use my torch for what seems
like annealling most of the time.
