You can draw it up if you chuck tiny balls of wax into the pot and gather quickly. Simpson used a rather large oxy acetylene torch on the pot surface. It all works.
Are you able to share any info on the flame settings or anything for the torch trick? I just found a premix torch with a really long neck that might work. Id be running it on oxy propane though. Id never given it much thought until now due to the lack of an appropriate torch.
