The test cast didn't happen. I got my new casting torch from Rio, the one that says it's specifically for gold and silver. Well, lemme tell ya, that thing is HUGE! The flame is HUGE, the handpiece is HUGE, the tip is HUGE. Complete overkill. I think it would be a great torch if I wanted to melt a bucket of silver, but I only want to melt a few ounces. We can't get a small flame off of this torch cause it pops every time we try to adjust the oxy. I officially despise this new torch. I'm completely uncomfortable with it. I'm just gonna have to buy another one. Here's a pic of the hag, look at how small my hand looks compared to the torch. Nope, not happening.
