    Cool Messiest Desk Contest! Win a mini CC and Glass!

    Hello TMP! We are hosting a messiest desk contest, sponsored by BoRo and David Smith! You could win a mini CC donated by BoRo, and a fun glass package put together by David Smith.

    BoRo says:
    Just a dusty torch. Mini cc....

    I actually sold the mini I started on for 2 years... ( 2001-2002)
    This torch was bought new in 2000. Was used full time , 60 hours a week for almost 4 years, bu a blower named "John kruzi" he is from upstate n.y. But lives close to grass valley c.a. Now? Does scientific and pipes now..... John sold it to me for 25$ beer money a decade ago.
    Cool! It's always fun to know a torch's history.

    I will toss a assortment of clear tube and rod. I have just about every size from 2mm rod to 50mm tube. I will add a nice sample pack mix, all ends saw cut.

    So I guess ill go first lol My studio is still a mess from finishing up the rebuild, just got my last ventilation piece in the mail today!
    If I win the mini cc, it will be my fiance's first torch! and will be set up on the small table. When we move into our house this summer/fall, it will become a guest torch when we get her an upgrade. Then we will have a guest bedroom and bench available for traveling artists.

    There's no way I would win. My scrap bucket is way too shiny, with some cool shiny stuff that outweighs me ever wanting to clean it! That actually is a good tip, no kidding. It might help you feel a little cleaner about your creativity.

    Nice JHamilton, looking like a nice place to work.

    I like keeping all my tools handy just in case I need anything but tweezers! I do recommend a heavy/solid type scrap bin for a little more comfort when peeling, breaking, scrapping etc.......I also like not putting water in it more since it evaporates, makes it little messy and confusing emptying it and some other benefits.

    First pic is 4 in paddle for reference second pic is 4 in paddle burried 3rd pic is .. bench view with name and date 4th pic is .. floor overflow from bench .. I havent cleaned my shop in years ... Always have more work to do .. I would use torch ... to train apprentice .. after they clean my shop... lol .. it would also help me greatly because I make a lot of humming birds ..and I could just hook the mini cc up to concentrators and make birds .. on days when the oxygen guys wont come ... This is the real actualy working state of my bench ... If people want to play make a mess .. to try and out do me .. I have two trash cans full of boro scrap .. I have beaten down with cynderblocks .. smash the glass and make more room. I can dump on the table if need be .. . As I have said .. there is noooo way you can out mess a Dank dinosaur .. Oscar the grouch moved out .. because .. he could not take it any more.. LOL ... Honestly .. this mess is the result of . having constant orders .. and no money .. so I never take the time to clean .. I just make more stuff. because cleaning wont make the orders .. that and for a couple of years .. I just didn't give a fuck about anything was basically on auto pilot .. Any way .. If I win ... I will clean it .. and post pics .. or .. get an apprentice .. and have them do it .. I do ocaisionally go bench mining .. this is what I call it ..when I dig to the bottom in the area around my torch to find the gold bits .. but other then "Bench Mining" I don't think Ive cleaned my shop in 4 or 5 years .. possibly longer ..
