What is the most commonly used torch tip # on the mini torch? I
usually use #5. Please share your thoughts on this.

I seem to use a #4 tip most, but I use the tip that is appropriate
for the job. I generally use #6 or #7 for working on silver
pieces…Teddy

I have one that used to have a ruby in it that I’ve used exclusively
since 1980.

I mostly use a #5, more delicate work I use a #4, the #3 is very
difficult to keep lit using propane, but sometimes I need it for tiny
stuff. When I’m working with silver, I use the #7 and I use the
rose-bud tip for melting.

I mostly use the 4. I am using acetylene and the 5 produces too much
soot. I will use a large tip when I am doing a larger silver item.
But the 4 is fine for most all of my gold and smaller silver items.

I mostly use a #5, occasionally a #4 or #7. I use a rose-bud for
melting. I also took the #6 and reamed it out a bit. The result is a
tip that is somewhere between the #7 and the rosebud. It’s very
handy for silver belt buckles, etc. I also use it for torch
enameling.

I use the tip necessary to do the job at hand!!. For small stuff it
might be a 3 or a 4…as the work gets progressively larger I will
go to a 7 or even the multi-orifice tip. My torch is set up for
propane and O2.

I use #7 for the most part, on a oxy/propane setup. I use the
smaller tips if I have something really fine and tricky I need to
work on, but for the most part I stick with #7.
