HOT HEAD® BEAD TORCH HEAD
Most lamp-workers use an expensive oxygen-propane torch system costing
several hundreds of dollars requiring an oxygen tank in your home.
Non-oxygen Hot Head® Torch works with high intensity MAPP-GAS to produce
beautiful beads without the muddy colors caused by regular torch heads.
Specially designed to produce plenty of heat and a clean and neutral
oxygen-rich flame with only room air. When used properly this torch head
will not reduce the colors of any glass. Inexpensive, easy to set up and
operate with just a simple one pound canister of MAPP-GAS.
SELF-IGNITING TORCH HEAD WITH REGULATOR
Bent nozzle rotates 360° to enable work in any position without moving the
fuel cylinder. The regulator allows for constant flame and pressure, which
is important when making beads. The venturi combustion tip generates
brazing temperatures without oxygen. Just press the piezo ignitor button
for instant flame. Works with MAPP-GAS or propylene brazing fuel.
PROPYLENE BRAZING FUEL CYLINDER
Propylene is a high temperature fuel that burns hotter and cleaner than
other fuels. It is identical in temperature and performance to MAPP-GAS.
Can be purchased at your local hardware or building supply stores.
GAS CANNOT BE SHIPPED UPS/FEDEX
Plastic stand holds 14.1oz. oz 16.4oz cylinders upright securely so you
can concentrate on your work and not worry about knocking over your torch.

DIDYMIUM SAFETY GLASSES
Special lens material blocks transmission of the bright yellow light,
"soda flare" while transmitting the rest of the visible
spectrum, making it easier to see your bead clearly while in the flame.
FIBER BLANKET SHEET
Place your hot beads in between this non--asbestos refractory material and
cooling will be slowed down at an acceptable rate. (Large beads may
require kiln annealing). Sheet size:20" x 24"

STAINLESS STEEL MANDRELS
Stainless steel rods are excellent for bead making when coated with

pattern or a diamond (pineapple) pattern. Made of solid aluminum, this is
a versatile tool for the beadmaker.
