I would start with 3-4 psi on the gas and 6- 8 on the O2 for a start.If it seems weak and doesnt get hot enough turn them up a tad .
Since your working jewelry the settings I posted should do.

I like he fact it has antiblow back valves in the lines

Nice safety feature.

It could be to low for the flanges, but the ratio of the gas/oxy is correct as shown on the wiki page..

Who knows, the little torch size can play a part , I'm thinking. And the reason I suggest sticking with, and keep working the mig.
