I'm almost ready to start lampworking. I have everything I need except for fuel at this point. The torch I have is a borrowed Wildcat.
My goals with LWorking are:
- Small marbles
- Larger Boro marbles
later. Maybe waaaay later, as in a couple years.
I've read some threads on here about these torches including this recent thread:
Lynx vs. Wildcat
Since I am new to the art, I don't want to spend a ton of cash until I know I'm going to stick with it. Since I definitely need a fuel source and I've read a Wildcat will run off of an Oxycon, I'm looking at getting one of those. It appears to me that the Lynx will need 2 Oxycons because of the 2 oxygen inputs. Is this true or can you run them off of one Oxycon with a splitter? Can you run the Lynx with just one oxygen feed and then add the second later if you want?
Thanks, folks. I'm sooooo close to melting some glass and I'm getting pretty excited.
