    they are. the only opals that are 100% guaranteed to be compatible are Gilson lab created opals. there is one person who claims to have encased a real (natural) opal w/o checking or off gassing, but i've only heard about it.....never saw a pic. if it worked, he got lucky.

    went to grow expo this weekend and seen a few guys from lansing killing it on torch, realized how shitty my oxy cons have had my scorpion running gonna try to have them refurbished. ran tanked on the torch for a few of these spoons completely different working with some heat was able to do these fume spacey spoons on coablt with clear dots/lines in 15-20 mins rather than 30-45 mins

    I hear ya on the oxycons - I'm using a sequal integra, which works awesome, but I went to a local artists house over the weekend and hooked up to tanked. Man was it pleasure! I'm about to say F it (to my neighbors) and get a homefill instead of a second unit.

    edit - nice looking spoons btw

    Are you sure it was the pressure that made the difference? If it's purity, I don't see how a homefill is going to help. There's a noticable difference between tanks and my concentrator, even at low pressure and low flow.

    I may be a bit confused on what you mean/asking... I had the tank set to the recommend settings (8oxy/2prop - Bravo). I don't have a gauge to measure what psi is coming out of my oxy, but it's probably pretty close - the only thing I can't get is a super reduced flame (loud/hissing), which I think is beneficial.

    Don't homefills yield very pure tanked oxygen? I thought they won't even pump into the tank unless it's at a certain purity?

    90% is all homefill requires.
