  • Another torch set.

    I got dragged to a sale the other day, came home with this torch set, 2 heads, one is a Victor clone, a little one and works well, the oxy reg took a dump when I fired it up but I had a spare and the gas filled in for a broken one, the gas bottle full for 160$. Last tank I bought when I needed one was 240 from the dealer. I was half looking for more bottles.

    I am fairly well set now, have 4 acetylene and 6 oxy, at the rate I use can go a long time between fills now, we don't use it like back in the day, now plasma does the cutting.

    Everything else was a bonus, was after the bottles. The regulators were new, not used much, I heard the secondary give it up on the oxy. Its a nice little dual stage unit and I know this is not for everyone but where is the link for reg parts? I got it saved somewhere.

    Yes, it is pretty hard to get on with one bottle of anything.

      Great buy!

      I would use Bill's for kits, and has great service at reasonable prices if you don't have time to do it yourself.

        Its only the second time it has happened on a job but will need to do something shortly, am back where I started and had a reg dump on a job the other day. I was losing pressure and went back to the truck, as soon as I touched the screw I heard it give and the ga headed north towards 200, I was right on it and shut off.
        I was out of town sawzalled the job to beat a rain storm that came so fast I got soaked, also a first in some time, I don't do wet very well.

        This was a Victor SR450D, I think a little piece in the needle assembly broke if I understand it right, no leak to the outside, just a pressure spike. The matching acetylene reg leaks, this I believe is a diaphragm if I understand correctly. Anyway, now need parts for 3 and finding all this is good as all mine are old.

        I have 3 sets in service but fixing it all would give 2 spare and since the storage space is similar figured maybe leave another set rigged in the shop for convenience.

          If I had a single set would probably send it off for reman or replace but between myself and the neighbors we have a few, would be worth a little effort to source parts and when they get a little wonky repair a couple.

            I don't think I would like to repair one on my own even if it ended up being rather simple. I always get a little nervous any time I am around this stuff.
