    I need to do a small project that will take not more than 5 minutes total. i am told i will suffocate myself if i do it indoors but a few minutes shouldnt be a problem, right? i'd do this outside but i dont want my gutter rat neighbors to see that i am melding precious metals.

    I doubt that propane will give you sufficient heat to melt precious metal well.

    May require oxy-acetylene.

    WTF are you doing?

    i ripped out a few gems from rings and other collectables and wanna melt them into a big coin, i just place the fragments into the socket and im hoping the blowtorch will do its thing but first i have to know if i should be worried about doing it in my flat, is a few minutes enough to make me woozy or what?

    Should not be a problem. Think of Thanksgiving when Grandma had the oven on for hours and all four burners going on the stove and nobody got sick. I would recommend opening 2 windows for cross ventilation. You never know if there is cadmium or such mixed in with your metal.
    The following users say it would be alright if the author of this post didn't die in a fire!

    thanks, i will do that. kinda new to this.

    i am especially interested in extracting treasure from scrap but know i will never have the expertise or equipment. its just that the only thing in abundance where i live is garbage. seeing all these plants that extract energy, fuel and gold from it is insane.

    make sure you have decent ventilation and/or a mask, gold or silver shouldn't be a problem but other chemicals on them might not be good for you
