    I have never seen one up close. Only Carlisle and Bethlehem around here really. I have used others though.

    Hilarious, this comment is following me pretty far, I had to edit it to get people off my back. I just had a really frustrated moment because I am having trouble doing a tech on the mirage that I have zero problems with on my other torch. There is no shame in saying you cant do something, and working hard to get it right. I had been on the torch for about ten hours making the same thing over and over, and was having a tough time of it, and unfortunately had my computer in the shop, and made a silly comment. Thanx to the people that gave me some good advice and positive support. I will keep working hard to continue to succeed at paying my bills this way, even if the whole glass world hates me for saying gtt sucks (I am not the first person to say this, even though I dont agree with this 100%). You have a bad moment and people kick you, real nice right? Seems like it happens alot with glassblowers in general, but it does not bother me as long as I continue making progress. The frustrating part is being able to do something really well with one tool ( a supposedly harder to use tool ) and not being able to figure out the same riddle with a tool I have way more hours on. I am mainly being told that I need to jack my pressures up to 7/1 ratio and use the oxy to the point that it is cooling the flame, because my problem is that I can't make ISO fumed combs with it, and I can do it very easily on a ESL herbie, I made about 20 of them last week. Whats the advantage of working with a tool that makes it harder for you anyhow?

    I am not ashamed of being new, or for failing at something, because I will fail til I get it right. A bunch of negative comments on the internet will only stop a weak person. now kick away, I can take it. Been sifting through negative comments from people that want to put me down since I started doing this, and I just keep enjoying doing it, and keep making money.

    Skuzz, I personally don't agree with the "oh, you need 1000psi of oxy" BS, but alas, I'm not a "baller". I do, however, have the luxury of personally knowing and working with several seasoned veterans (30+ years) who actually know how to use a torch without beating the hell out of it. I also have actual working experience (not just shit I read on the interwebs) with several different torches. I only mentioned how I run mine because I'm not about to tell someone that 80psi is way too high for a Mirage and then get into a pissing match with some dude that thinks his shit is platinum. Your torch should not be screaming while you work. My suggestion is to go back to the manufacturers suggested settings and make your adjustments from there. What works for one, may not work for another.

    or even use a rod of Amazon Night. the good ole "is it neutral" exercise. works every time, and that is one of the things that helped me understand that you don't need your oxygen screaming like a banshee at 80psi.

    i run my mirage on 11 propane and 50 oxygen, when i need a more oxidizing flame i dial back the propane a few lbs.

    Or..... Use the ESL.


    The gtt is much hotter. It penetrates solids (like a comb) much faster.
    Even if they look the same, the core may be much hotter on the gtt.

    I bet your not letting the comb cool off enough to strike. Got to hold it in the dark to see no red.
    Got to use the outer wisp edge far far from the gtt. Got to try to mimic the slower climb in temp. Give the glass enough time in the temp "zone" that lets them grow and do their thing (combs)

    Sorry I too am off topic. At least my post may help someone.

    Just scored a mirage and a new rock-it. So that means my 4stud phantom w/blastshield marver and smith v-blade and bishop pedal are available. (That's the catch, I'm not separating the phantom and pedal) Both in Really great condition. Pm with interest.

    Torch combo is sold guys. Sorry
