You never get pure oxygen, but it should be at least 93%. What is the smell, other than weird? Musty, moldy? If so, it might be mildewy inside and need some cleaning. Not sure I would try to...

With a concentrator, I think Bobcat, Cricket, Alpha, Minor. I am not sure any of those are really a step up from a mini cc though. If you are running 1 5lpm concentrator, you will not see much...

Raku (Iris Orange, either 104 or 96 version) shards are good for organics too. I love a base of Effetre Avocado or Sage for them also.

Do you need it specifically to fit Pandora? If so, the only place I know of is Santa Fe Jewelry Supply, and they were out last time I looked. Rio sells tubing, but it is heavy wall, so does not fit...

I think it will get deleted, as no sales are allowed. There are two destash groups you can try: Destash Supplies for Lampworks and Lampwork Supplies Destash. Either one will allow an ISO post.

Yes, that was my experience also. It works, but was not as good as my Bobcat on the same M15. My Lynx has just been sitting here since I got it. But if you have tanks, it is a great torch.
