          Why do my details show me as joining in Feb 2011 Alan? Are we doing the Timewarp and no-one told me?

            It’s Cookson pick of the week! I see they say it can be used with all sorts of gases but not quite understanding this as I thought it was only OxyCon. I think I’m too old for that that fiddling now, the only torches I’ve ever used with air were mouth blown when I first joined the jewellery dept at ECA, I was really pleased when we got our new sieverts and have never changed

              The 'OxyCon' is an Oxygen concentrator Caroline, so it's one of a selection of gas fuels combined with Oxygen

                Thanks for explaining Alan, I thought maybe the oxygen was now optional. It comes up a lot on Cookson and it’s always implied that the oxygen is expensive

                The Oxygen concentrator is good in as much as you don't need to hire and store cannisters and don't run out at the wrong moment. They're a reasonable initial expense to buy one but the savings should come in the long run.

              I bought the torch and oxygen concentrator for my fiancee (yes, times have changed, I'm getting married! :-) I think they're great and I usually end up playing with it in the garage.

                Ah Alan, Congratulations to you and your fiancé - I'm so pleased for you. (whispers now), is she the nurse that looked after you when you were in hosp?).

                  Thanks Petal, yes that’s the one. Not a nurse though, she’s an ODP working in the theatres, Toni (who posted above) and we’ve got her making jewellery as well now :-)

                        What's the competition then Alan? And are the joining dates copied over from the Jewellers' Collective?
