    Nice piece! I like your torch, I almost got the wildcat but the guy at the shop talked me into the nortel midrange plus instead.

    Looks great, man. I love pipes in that style. Glassblowing is very high up on my list of things I need to learn to do. It looks like rockin' good fun.

    thanks for the positive feedback.
    I figured this would be a good intro post ;)

    I got the wildcat off ebay for $250. I think maybe I shoulda went with a different torch though, not much of a pinner flame and lacking penetration unless I crank it up.
    the midrange would be a better choice for sure

    my first 2 months was spending hours a day trying to make a pipe, once I got it it was a matter of melting in smooth and trying to understand the flame characteristics,
    now I'm trying to make the pipes faster

    thanks again for the props, more to come for sure
