Excellent value for the money
February 25, 2014
Provides exactly what I need; love it. I had to trade in the nice new tanks in order to obtain filled ones from local, but that's all right. Unfortunately, the regulators interfere with each other; the oxy regulator has a long stem which puts it in front of the acetylene regulator. Turning the oxy tank makes the acetylene tank accessible, but now the oxy regulator is facing toward the back. During operation you need to do this, though, or else the acetylene cylinder valve is barely accessible behind the regulators -- hard to reach in an emergency.
If the acetylene and oxygen tanks were reversed I think things might work better -- but the caddy requires them to be acetylene on the left and oxygen on the right.
Nevertheless, I love it.
Proso Price was good.
o Shipping was fast.
o Quality is good; sturdy caddy, good-quality regulators, hose, and tips.
Cons- Acetylene regulator nut appears to be a non-standard size (not found on my tank fish wrench).
- Stem on oxygen regulator is quite long; regulators are either in each other's way or else protruding beyond the bounds of the caddy.
- Acetylene tank valve is *not* easily accessible for emergency shut-off; it is behind the regulators.
