A returning metalsmith herer again asking about torches.
I did my homework and finally decided to buy a Meco torch-- using
oxygen & propane. I was thrilled to see the cute little tanks that
came from Otto Frei-- until I went to fill the propane tank and was
warned not to keep the tank inside a building or enclosure.
The propane guys that filled the little tank up said that in case of
fire or explosion in my studio (which is a building in back of my
house), no insurance company would pay for damages–since the tank
would have been illegally stored.
I asked about storing the tank outside and running some kind of line
inside. The gents indicated that forced gas in town was also
I’ve yet to hear of a jeweler soldering outside so I assume there
must be a way around this.
How does anyone insure their studios?
Thanks & Cheers,
