PHOTOS! ILMENAUER LAMPWORKING / GLASS BEADMAKING SET UP: $700. This is a high-end, German-made, unused almost complete set up for glass beadmaking / lampworking. You just need a propane tank and safety glasses (I am keeping those). Includes: propane / oxygen / air Ilmenauer B18 burner ($570); low noise jet set ($285); oxygen regulator ($53); adjustable propane regulator ($53); combination flash arrest and quick connectors ($55); 12' hose set ($20); brass masher ($15); 3" x 5" graphite paddle ($20); mandrels, rod rest ($5); sludge premix rod release ($7), teflon tape, and about $50 worth of glass rods. Includes an older oxygen tank: 4' tall, about 7" in diameter, last filled in 1999. Tank may or may not still be full, and may need re-certification. Oxygen tank has been stored in our garage and kept dry. Everything else has been stored in a plastic tote inside our yurt. Photos of: oxygen Ilmenauer B18 burner; low noise jet set, quick connectors and hose set  regulators   brass masher, graphite paddle, rod rest, and rod releaseBurner info: stamped on base of burner: Ilmenauer Glasmaschinenbau GmbH. Ilmenau makes high end glass-working equipment. I took classes in lampworking and did all my beadmaking on a Mapp gas torch at Studio One in Oakland. I took figurine glass class where they used this model burner. In a moment of art-inspired insanity, I bought all this equipment at C & R Loo in Richmond, CA in 1999. I have receipts for everything, except oxygen tank, which was free. Burner is like new. I fired it up once and it made a 3' flame and I haven't fired it up since. We moved to Hayfork and I never set up a lampworking studio, and I never will. This burner can work everything from glass beads and figurines to glass tubing, for making small hollow glass ornaments. This is NOT a set up for a beginner, unless you have an experienced person to teach you how to use it. Total cost of equipment: $999. I will sell the complete set up for $700. I have a 12-page PDF of the manual for this burner that I can email to you, if it helps you to answer more technical questions.I contacted C & R Loo, and they mailed me a one page sheet with additional info on this burner: "The new Ilmenau Burners are great for working with glass cane (rods) and tubing. Burners come with one replaceable tip for working with tubing. Use the LOW NOISE jet set for working with solid rods. These burners are available in a propane / oxygen / air version. You can adjust the burner from a pin point flame to a flame larger than the Major burner at the twist of a single dial. When working with glass tubing, use air in addition to gas and oxygen to make a wide cool flame; when working with solid rods, use only gas and oxygen. ILMENAU B1/8 BENCH BURNER: For use with propane, air, and oxygen (B1/8). This burner has a special stabilization flame and an additional oxygen tube in the central supply line. Center jet is a multiple nozzle. Well suited for artistic and laboratory work. The flame can be adjust over a wide range of temperatures for working with low- or high-melting glasses. Comes with 2 single jets for tubing and 2 multi-jet low noise heads for solid cane."
Rod info: Some of the rod was used in my beadmaking. Rod inventory: Two 1/2" clear rods 3' long; 69 colored rods 10" - 14" long; 26 colored rods 4" - 8"; 1 clear tube 3' long and about 1.5" diameter. Rod is of varying diameter, but mostly about pencil-sized. Photo of glass rods. More info: email Rachel or call 530-628-4579. Updated 1/31/13.
