Little Torch flame heat


#1

Hi,

I’m new to the Forum and the Jewelry world. I have quiet a few
questions, but will start with one today.

I’ve just tried using my “Little Torch” yesterday and found that the
flame that came out was not the way I remember it looking when I took
my classes. It was a regular flame and did not have the blue in the
middle and when I tried to control it and change it the oxygen lever
it didn’t make a difference. I’m not sure if it’s a fault in the
"Little Torch" or if I just wasn’t using it correctly. I couldn’t
get it to the skinny small blue flame in the middle, it was round
and the blue seemed more on the outside then on the inside.

If you have any suggestions please let me know.

Check for the tip number. You’ll probably want to use a number 4 or
5 for gold work. Sounds like you have a 6 or 7 in it. It’s stamped
on the back of the tip.
