OEM part, best price I could find but still expensive
ProsIt's a factory OEM replacement part.
Have not installed yet, its just like the hose that came with my torch when new. It comes with the tool needed to install the new hoses. I also found a YouTube video on line that showed how to install.
ConsHopefully a word of caution that some may find helpful.
My "Little Torch" is way over 20 years old. It's the real brand name product, not a knock off. I have used it fewer than 15 times during that time. In between uses, it's stored in it's original cardboard box in a tool chest. About a year ago when I went to use it, as I was setting it up, I noted the hoses were leaking. Not good on a Oxygen Acetylene setup. You could easily have a fire as loose Oxygen makes things that normally would not burn, almost instantly come to flame. The Old hoses have become stiffer & brittle, as when you now flex them, you can hear a crunching sound.
From my memory and few years ago, when I spoke with the Little Torch manufacture, the hoses have a 7 year life expectancy.
