Bunsen burner / Blowpipe build


near the top of my to build list is a blowpipe and Bunsen burner install.

I've got the general idea from 100 year old science books, and intend to use disposable tanks and standard hardware store pin-valve torch heads.
I'll connect the torch head to a hose to feed my black pipe Bunsen burner and adjust gas flow using the torch head pin valve.

I will also incorporate an alcohol burner for use with the blowpipe.

design/approach comments welcome.

I am interested in any experience you may have in using the blowpipe.
the idea of breath controlling flame is attractive to me.

Still plenty of jewellers who swear by this method.
