    Bench Source Annealing Machine

    Hi All,

    I have just bought the above, is anyone else using one as i am interested as to which propane touches you are using? Looks a well made piece of kit.

    I was ideally thinking of trying to get 2x touches fed off a Y piece direct from a large propane bottle rather than buying the small canisters.

    Don't you get burners when you buy a Bench Source machine?? -- If you don't it's like buying a car without wheels!!

    I've just built my own annealer & am currently running a single Calor Gas hand torch with a small burner - I run it off a big propane bottle. It works well & I won't need two - I get adequate heat input with the one & my cycle time is about 6 seconds.
    Bernzomatic torches are suitable too.

    Yes, perfectly possible to get a Y piece. You can get them in the (full bore) bottle valve size fittings which are used for linking a number of cylinders together into a manifold system, or with individual needle valves on the torch side of the regulator. I use both in the forge.

    Were there no gas pipes or regulators included with the machine?
