I purchase most of my supplies from ABR Imagery and my goggles from Sundance Glass.
Since I blow little things and small scientific glassware, I use a small torch. The torch I use is a National 3-B-B Premix Hand Torch . A starter kit is the easiest way to go. You will also need the stand for it. I mounted it on my workbench with a ceramic board covering the bench.
From your torch, attach the hoses and then spark arrestors to the regulators, then your tanks. My propane tank is a large tank used for a barb-q grill (shown behind the oxygen tank) and a size A oxygen tank. You can use a larger oxygen tank but this one is easie for me to move around. A note of safety, secure your oxygen tank with chains or a strap to something sturdy. This is a safety issue to prevent if from getting knocked over.
Your didymium goggles should be able to block the yellow/orange flare, and block the UV and IR rays.
Other things you will need:
Size 1 and 3 tips for you torch
Metal can or metal coffee can (glass waste bin)
Borosilicate glass (Pyrex brand or other): rod in 6 mm, tubing in 8
and 14 mm tubing
Triangle file or a glass cutter
Triangular stand for your hot glass
Striker or a lighter
Approximately 4 X 4" ceramic mats (hot blown glass objects to
Long 6" nail
Hand towel (for breaking glass, safety)
Heavy wire screen (flint knapping the edges)
Approximately 320 wet/dry sand paper
...any thing I forget, we'll get into later.
