I Must Comment on OSHA!!
My dentist of 15 years decide to teach rather than put up with OSHA!..
Typical. . make a dentist rap equipment in poly when the AIDS virus is
large enough to fit through the microscopic holes!
General contracted my own home … If my painter decide to 'Drink the paint’
I would be liable for damage!!!
Who turned these nuts loose on the general public??
Not allowed to have a 'regular bottle(8 1/2 #s, I believe) of propane in a
small jewelers space… What’s this control the size of the explosion???
And it only gets worse depending on profession . . I guess we, the public,
are no longer responsible for our actions to any extent!!!
Kind of nice if I had the $$$ to hire a fleet of Lawyers!!

according to OSHA, bottled fuel gases and oxidizers must be separated
by 25 feet in permanent installations, even for storage with the caps
That is why we use water torches here for gold and silver soldering.

Hi All: Since this message hasn’t gotten too long yet, I will tag onto
it. What advantage would there be to soldering with natural gas/oxygen
as opposed to propane/oxygen? Also, someone mentioned they were working
in separate rooms, i.e., (I assumed) one for filing, another soldering.
Was that for safety reasons?
Another thing that should be mentioned if anyone new to goldsmithing is
following this thread is not to heat the solder any longer than necessary to
do the job properly. Overheating the solder WILL burn it up, leaving pits
I might add that a problem I have in my silver work with pitting in solder
seams comes from many soldering operations with hard solder. I think I’ll
go back to using hard and medium again being more careful not to get too
