Ok, I'm feeling a bit discouraged! But I'm in no way giving up! Like
I said, I am new to this, I'm still learning.... My former teacher
and the workers at a jewelry supply store suggested acetylene, I was
told to get an acetylene B tank and have a Smith silversmith kit.
The lease says nothing about having gases in the house. My landlord
is never here...never. I hate to be sneaky at all but...I don't really
have a choice unless it's give up on this right now, and for a long
When you say check with my insurance...what kind of insurance are
you speaking of? (again, new to this, please excuse my ignorance)
The basement is the only place I can work...I do not have a garage.
And I am living pay check to paycheck, but was blessed enough to have
my family chip in for my birthday for starting off supplies. I would
love to take another class...but can't afford it. Maybe I'll have to
find a way I suppose. I have not purchased the tank yet, because I
want to be sure that I am keeping myself, and the others around me
safe. I am asking on here because I don't know who to talk to about
this, I'm thinking of going to the shop I got my tools and get more
opinions from them too. I have a fire extinguisher, I have a sturdy
table and a chain to hold the tank steady to the table leg (this has
been suggested to me). I have a lock to put on the basement door. I
am still wondering what constitutes as proper ventilation.
I really don't want to have to find a studio where I can set up, I
wont be able to afford that.
From the few people I've talked to....they say ill be fine, but
arn't convincing on what's proper ventilation. I just keep hearing so
many things, and reading these responses I'm even more not sure how
to proceed! I will continue to read and research. Again though,
everything I read says "proper ventilation" and leaves it at that.
Thank you all for your input! More thoughts are always welcome!
