Default What's it gonna take?

Hi everybody. I've been out of circulation for about 5 years and man have I forgotten a lot! Anyway...

I'm thinking about starting up my studio again. I sold almost all of my soft glass but still have all my boro rods and frit. I'll be sticking strictly to beads.. maybe I'll move back to soft glass but the options have changed so much!

I want to know the optimum set up to get good boro color - a question that has been asked from the dawn of time, lol.

Tanked oxy is out because I'll be in the basement with the furnace and water heater, etc. But, I do have natural gas.

I was thinking about a Lynx with two linked oxy cons. What do you think?

I don't think a Lynx on nat gas will be efficient.

I would call GTT and talk to Wally if you are looking at a GTT torch. They really helped me as I set up my new shop.
