...., but I still had two bombs
in my cellar.....
While I have used propane and O2 from standard tanks in various
jewelry shops for over 40 years, the above concern over fire
hazards that compressed gas can pose is very, very real.
Following up James Newton’s post this would be a good time to
mention G-TEC Natural Gas Torch Boosters, systems that supply high
pressure gas to your torch but eliminate storage cylinders from your
home studio, garage or anyplace on your property. G-TEC Torch
Boosters never have more than 1 cubic foot of gas in them, they boost
gas pressure and supply it to your torch as gas is used.
Torch Boosters are compact, quiet and sit right next to your bench.
Another way a Torch Boosters improves studio safety is that with
high pressure natural gas you can use flashback arrestor/check valves
with your torch. Normal utility gas pressure is so low that flashback
arrestors block gas flow.
Yes, Torch Boosters cost a couple dollars but you get a clean flame,
never run out of fuel and make your studio a safer place to work.
