Nice kit, some initial quality issues
October 22, 2014
I decided to replace my cobbled together Oxy/Acy torch setup with a complete new kit. This kit had a nice selection of options with the cutting tip, the welding tip and also the rosebud as well. The kit has good instructions and was just what I expected, however there were a few issues with parts out of the package. One of the threaded fittings on the torch handle was slightly messed up and did not allow the hose to be threaded on properly. A few moments with the thread file and all was good. Also, the inline check valves were stuck closed and would not allow gas to flow. I am expecting replacements to solve this problem.
So after the few initial issues, I really like the kit and have used it many times already with very good success.
