I was at the welding supply house getting some shielding gas and I was looking at some oxy/acetelene torches.
I told the counter guy that I basically would be using it for heating manifolds, studs and nuts and bolts. He recommended a medium duty Weld Air (?) kit that's made by Victor for $200. It doesn't come with a swirl tip, so I'd be laying out more money for that, on top of the tanks.
I was doing some Googling, and see some Turbotorch set ups that are for MAPP, MAPP Pro, and propane, for considerable less money.
Can I expect the cheaper alternative to meet my expectations?
