    I am down to the last real MAPP gas cylinder I stockpiled. End of an era.

          I wondered why they were spelling it differently these days. I only just recently bought some "MAP-Pro" and used it for an HVAC brazing job when my oxy-acetylene rig wasn't with me at the time.

            Well I'll be darned? I'm thinking you shouldn't be cracking those now? I must not have read that memo when it went around and seems it's a rare product indeed? Since 2008 yet? Think long and hard, one day it could be worth serious money to the rich guy who wants to experience the difference? Thanks Dale for the info and link. And you guys who got the stuff, the "good stuff", I'm a little jealous.
