buying in bulk

Can I just say I LOVE my new bulk tank?

#30 pounds of chemtane and a twelve foot fuel hose makes me very happy. It's at least as hot as the MAPP gas I was using, but way cheaper and no issues with the tank freezing up. So far, there are twelve beads cooling in the hot pot, and no breakage. I even made a pair of disc beads in my favorite RED in hopes of making the cool earrings I have in mind.

I worked for an hour and a half tonight and it was awesome. Yay! It's almost as good as a dual-fuel torch.....nah, not really.....but it's definitely a major improvement over the silly one-pound canisters.

I can't wait to see the beads tomorrow morning!

So how did your disc beads turn out? Do I get to see them this weekend?
