I am using a mini torch with natural gas and oxygen. I have the tips
#1-4 that came with it and can only use #4. I can’t even get #1 and
#2 lit and #3 won’t stay lit. I worked as a goldsmith at a large
jewelry store with many brilliant goldsmiths and I remember that they
used to break out the ruby in the torch to make a bigger flame with
the smaller tips. My husband suggested that I cut the very end off
the torch tip to accomplish the same thing. I never intend to use
these tips with acetylene so I’m not really worried about modifying
them. What is the best way to open up my #1-3 mini torch tips?
Thanks for any help you might be able to give.
