Excellent Basic Oxy-Acetylene Set-Up
March 3, 2012
I use my torch for a wide range of heating, welding, and brazing purposes, mostly in the creation, repair, and restoration of machinery and equipment in a low-volume, non-production environment. I've been extremely happy with the high quality and the excellent fit and finish of the Smith torch and regulators. They are beautifully-made tools, and using them is always a pleasure. Buying the outfit saves money over buying the individual components. I also own a Smith AW1A (Versa-Torch) handle, which I highly recommend.
ProsWell-designed, well-made, easy-to-use, reliable.
ConsThe kit comes with on-the-torch-handle flashback arrestors, while I'd prefer to have on-the-regulator fa's.
