Setting up your torch station is like designing your kitchen. I don't take up much space in the large room but I like everything within reach. My chair is a bar stool that swivels allowing me to reach for things I need without leaving the torch. Because with the boro flowers, I make a lot of components [leaves and petals] so I have a large chunk of graphite [marver] sitting in front of the bead door of my Paragon. The heat coming out of the door keeps this graphite hot allowing me to keep my components next to me hot.
I bought my generator I think around 2005 and have less than 400 hours on it which tells you how often I torch. Of course my 2001 PT Cruiser only has 32,000 miles. I am a tortoise in life. Right now I am making examples of flowers for a class in Colorado next month. I will be doing a demo and not teaching [Lewis is teaching].
