Default Help!

I really am stuck with only you guys to talk to so please help me out. I currently run a brazing torch and want to upgrade to a 'proper' torch. I run one oxygen concentrator (5lpm) and would like a torch that does small boro as well, by small I mean about 1-2 inches if that. Is there such a thing?
I only want to have a play with boro so I wont be running my oxycon at full. What do you recommend and why?

Thankyou in advance folks, I wouldn't mind a used one either so if that is the way to go what should I look for?

PLEASE

Nortel Minor, Bethlehem Betta, Carlisle Mini CC and GTT Bobcat all run well on one concentrator. We teach our boro classes on Minors, and they work fine.

Not sure if I should do this or not (hope it's not against board rules), but we carry both the Minor and Betta, and would be glad to help you get set up. We ship to the UK all the time.

I second the minor.
I work on a minor as well, and my oxy con is...hmmmm....ooooold. I just happened to melt my first piece of boro...it takes a tiny bit longer than soft glass, but it works just fine.
Ive heard....not seen...that the Carlisle gets a little hotter. You can also think of hooking up a second oxy con to it, if need be...
