This Smith oxygen/acetylene torch setup is truly a winner. I mess with all types of torches in my field and this one honestly takes the cake. The torch by itself is a bit on the heavy side but for a heavy duty combination torch it should be expected. As far as usability goes i have no complaints. The dual oxygen adjustment helps you control your oxygen outlet with precision. I can't stress enough how important having this feature is. With the flashback arrestors it comes with and that you have a very safe piece of equipment. My favorite part of this setup is the Regulators. They are extremely robust and have the highest control rate over your gas flow i have seen so far in any regulator i've used. I recommend this setup for the professional cause of the control and cutting power but also recommend this outfit to beginners because it is so safe to use.
ProsExcellent control for gas outlet
Excellent price for the quality you get
All around great package for beginners and pro's
Nickel plated steel for strong durability
2.5 inch dial displays that are easy to read from distance
Very precise and powerful piece of equipment
ConsA little on the heavy side but not too heavy for a heavy duty torch
Comes with a female reverse flare adapter on Acetylene intake you may have convert it to a male inverse flare fitting
it only costs around 7-8 dollars to change.
