Hi Syd! You sound just like me last year when I was setting up my
studio on the third floor (converted attic room - all wood) of our
(wooden) house. I was so worried and scared about having a tank of
anything in the house … worried it would explode, leak, basically
- worried about setting my house on fire. All my Orchid questions
were about “safest fuel to use”.
Well, I got a lot of great advice about which kind of fuel to use
and I went with what I had been taught on at school: acetylene and
atmospheric air, and it has worked, as usual just fine for me.
I just want to reassure you that it is completely normal to worry
when you are setting up in your home. Pick the fuel/rig that works
best for your work, and then just use it with your full attention
and with common sense. I never think about/worry about the
I-work-with-fire-in-a-room-made-of-wood anymore and my posts to
Orchid fairly trembled with anxiety!
I’m fine, you will be too! Have fun!
