    Very nicely done - clear, concise and with the addition of gauge (and perhaps mention of presoldering rings), very useful.

    Fantastic as ever Dennis. I love the addition of the hair pieces - we've seen your barrettes before, but the hairband is inspired!

    Wolf Tools wax carving set - unused

    I had to get something out of the drawer of shame, and found, amongst other things, this set of unopened, unused Wolf Tools.

    I love the clasp - the necklace is a really nice design.

    However, I'm not a fan of wire guardians unless they're very discreet and hidden away. Adding a small, then larger jump ring goes a long...

    The Tuffnells oxycons are more than adequate to run a Little Torch - no additional oxygen needed. All you need to add is a propane bottle, flashback arrestor and hose.

    I have these too, and they're fine, but for this particular application, paste or wire just work better - with a slight preference for wire. I'll report back on the results!
