Simple. Works Well, but Can't Use Safely with B-tank
November 7, 2014
Simple and works well--my second Turbotorch. The 8A tip does a nice job with the 2" copper. One big warning about this kit, and with the documentation generally for Turbotorch: according to most Acetylene safety guides, you cannot use this kit with a B-tank. It is too small. Even using the older, less conservative, estimates (1/7 of tank per hour), the B tank is much too small. Yet that is the larger of the two available tank fittings (regulator AR-B) . So you will have to buy an adapter to fit the CGA-140 fitting on larger tanks.
ProsSimple, compact regulator.
ConsLack of decent documentation and a kit that cannot be used safely out-of-the-box.
