OK Guys, There is no need to use a butane lighter in the studio. Very
dangerous! There are piezo-electric torch lighters that will work
INDEFINITELY AND SAFELY. They are relatively inexpensive, if you buy
them from a cook’s equipment store; they’re made for lighting fuel
for barbecue grills. Mine has lasted over six years, even though I’ve
dropped it and bent it and had to tape it together (It still works).
Also, jeweler’s suppliers carry a benchtop piezo-electric torch
lighter, more expensive, but worth every penny also.
Now. . . a question. . . ., since I know that because I dropped and
bent my lighter, it will not hold together forever, I went to back to
the cook’s store to buy a new one, and, lo and behold, my local store
doesn’t carry them anymore. Anyone out there know of a source???
