The challenge was to hold the torch in one hand and the camera in the other...

Wow! Challenge or not, this is a great shot all on it's own! The flame from the torch is beautiful! What is it that you are welding or melting?

Great post!

Rose

I agree, outstanding photo. I think people would appreciate it if you could explain how this device is used. Thanks.

Thanks for replies!

This is a "casting machine" used in dental laboratories to make metal constructions
for prosthetic teeth.
The torch is used to melt different types of metal/alloys. Then using centrifugal force
molten metal casts into the mold.
Similar technique is used in jewelry.
