Default Installing gas line to shed studio

Hi! I'm finally getting a permanent studio (I finally stopped moving around). It's been wired, insulated, drywalled, and the tile was installed today. I'm getting giddy!

I'm planning to install a propane gas line to the studio. What PSI do I need for the propane? Am I fine with 5 PSI? I read in one of the other threads that Propane = 5 PSI and Oxygen = 10 PSI. If I need to go to 10 PSI then I need a permit.

If you have any tips or safety suggestions, feel free to respond with tips. I've been scouring the forums for any information I can find and have bookmarked a number of the posts I've found useful. I found Mike Aurelius detailed post on Ventilation and am working with a local HVAC company to see if they can help me out.

Thank you in advance to anyone who answers!

Hi and welcome.

Your torch requirements will be listed with the torch you buy. Some are oxygen hogs others are better. The torch you buy will depend on price, the fuels you can afford, which fuels you choose and what you want to create will help you decide on which torch..

ARRGGGHHH. I just gave you more research to do .

HINT: torches...Alpha, Cricket or Mega Minor

Good luck with your new studio.

Thank you! I have a Nortel Midrange Burner. I haven't been able to find any info online and I can't find the packaging for the torch. I've emailed Nortel and I've emailed ArrowSprings who I bought the torch through. Still waiting for responses. I'm open to buying a different torch (ha, ha), but I do like the one I have.

HERE YOU GO....

The Midrange Bench Burner is a great torch for both soft and borosilicate glass. The flame is adjustable from a fine point to 1" thick. Narrow head for easy manipulation of glasswork. Smooth tilt and heavy base. Uses 5/16" BC hose.
Suggested gas and pressures:

Propane: 2 to 6 PSI

Natural Gas: 1/4 to 2 PSI

Oxygen: 5 to 8 PSI

Lorraine - thank you thank you! Youíre awesome! Iím going to proceed with installing the basic gas line at max 5 PSI as I think it will serve most of my needs. If I need to increase to higher pressure and get a permit I can entertain that at a future time.
