No pictures up from Mom for Christmas. I hope that means she's using her new oxygen concentrator to make beads. It'll be good for her to get back to it.

Nothing else to report.

What's an oxygen concentrator? And how can it be used to make beads?

An oxygen concentrator (or is it compressor, I'm not sure) goes putt-putt-putt and separates oxygen from the rest of the crap in the air. The oxygen is then mixed, in the torch head, with propane to make the flame hotter so she can melt glass (or boro, which is like Pyrex) faster and in a greater variety of temperatures.

This new one putt-putts faster, I think, so the flame is even better.

I ended up shopping with Grandma yesterday.

I'm on my way downstairs to try my new putt-putt out now. What this new one does is give more pressure for a hotter larger flame.

Hope it works well.

Ooo, it did! Good pressure and HOT flame!
