You know… sometimes I wonder, will lampworking ever become as popular as say quilting? Will there will be a glass store on every corner and everyone will be doing it? (‘Cause in my world of course it seems like everyone is doing it, but then I’m IN the glass world… heehee) However, I sort of doubt this will happen because I am reminded with my new torch purchase, what a BIG OL’ PAIN IN THE ARSE it is to get it all setup and how little help I got from the locals (who sold me 3/8″hose when I needed 1/4″hose…) I guess that I kind of make it hard because I install flashback arrestors on my torches. I know… I don’t really need them, but hey, the thought of flames shooting down my hoses and exploding my tanks… EEK! I don’t want that under any odds!! But finding all the pieces to make it happen, holy smokes! After many trips to the outskirts of town (do they ever put welding supply shops in town?) where guys think I’m nuts and wonder just what am I setting up, I think that I’ve finally got it all working! So now I’m finally off to play, hope your day is going great!!
