Ohhh yeah - the "Big Girls torch"

On the weekend I got to use Mum's Mini CC for the first time!!
I was a little scared at first - but then I realised that there was nothing more to be scared of than with the Hot Head. Mum helped a little bit when the glass went all wonky, but mostly she left me to it.

Yesterday I had another turn & Mum stayed away....completely. She said that there is only one way to learn, and that is by my mistakes.

This is one of them. I think I should have concentrated more on keeping the mandrel below the flame.

We've all done that at least one time. I'm still melting mandrels! Keep up the great work!
