    Default oxygen-acetylene Help

    Hi, been a member for a while but this is my first post.

    I'm trying to find some info or web sites that deal with using oxygen-acetylene equipment. Seems to be a lot on welding but....
    Anyone able to steer me in the right direction?
    Thanks

    web page Try this link and good luck. I had bought a torch setup about 1year ago, nice for cutting thick metal . I have used it to braze things a few times also. I use my arc welder for welding mostly.

    Just remember to be safe and try and store your cylinders outside if possible.

    Since I bought my Mig, I pretty much rarely use my OA, just to cut something that seems to big or won't fit into the band saw, and if I had a plasma cutter I wouldn't use it for that either.........I could see having an arc welder tho...........

    Ridgeman, Oxygen & acetylene are used mostly for brazing thinner materials ,my usage will be mostly for ornamental gadgets nothing real heavyduty usage. The one fairly heavy duty thing I have done is braze my cracked exhaust manifold muffler ring back together(don't ask [img]/forums/images/graemlins/crazy.gif[/img])

    Trying to gas weld anything like 1 1/2" angle is very time consuming and uses way too much O&A

    Mig is probably the way to go, But like a previous poster asked , What are your planning to do with it? [img]/forums/images/graemlins/cool.gif[/img]
