Re: propane for bloxygen

I've used argon off a welding tank for food and for paint, works great, but a lot of hassle unless you've got the welding setup handy all the time.

A splash of mineral spirits does the same job as the expensive gas for varnish, now that I'm varnishing regularly, I prefer the simplicity. Since I use a bit of thinner when I varnish anyways I've got it on hand.
