Re: Anneal 6 Gauge Solid Copper Wire

Hi Bob,

Since you have been successfully annealing smaller gauges of copper wire with a propane torch, the issue you're having with the 6 gauge must be with the amount of heat you are able to bring to bear with your torch. A larger nozzle might solve the problem, or bringing two torches to simultaneously bear on the workpiece?

If you should decide to invest in a mixed gas rig, you might want to take a look at oxy-propane as a somewhat more economic alternative to oxy-acetylene. Oxy-propane does not burn as hot as oxy-acetylene, but it still burns hot enough to cut steel...
