12' Mr. Heater propane hose for connecting a Propane Torch to a refillable bulk propane tank. Please do not use a 5' hose to connect your torch to a refillable bulk tank. We feel it is unsafe to keep your tank that close to you and a lit torch in a closed room. We recommend at least this 12 foot hose. A propane bulk tank should be located outside. $39.95

 

 

11 Inch Long Nosed Pliers. Used for pulling glass.

Straight End. $8.99

   

 

Great Lampwork Torch: $16.95.  Propane or Mapp Gas. We have used this torch head extensively and found that it behaves very similarly to the Hothead. We really could not find a difference in the quality of the flame or our lampwork. We guarantee you will be satisfied with this torch or return it for a full refund.

$16.95/each
