After putting my kiln on this afternoon i decided to try and make a few glass beads with my new torch set up. I got as far as coating my mandrels and no further. I lit the torch but there was gas leaking. Arrhhh. Back to the DIY store for another hose capable of more pressure i think. So annoying. I get to play on the internet instead. It was rather cold down in my basement today!
