what do you want to use it for

Oh its not a good idea to use it for heat treating (oxygen burns out the Carbon )

not the easiest of things to teach on forum threads ; )

Make sure you have 'flash back' arrestors fitted or you may get to heaven early!
Night school or pay a pro for a couple of hours tuition is highly recommended.

i'v used one for HT'n and had no problem with it, though i was using a massive nozzle and kept the blue cone well away from the knife, at least 6 inches away

though i know its not ideal, but if thats what you got it'll still work

Oxy' acetelyne is not recommended for heat treating steel, the oxygen leaches the carbon out of the surface and gives a 'softer' outer skin. I recommended a book on here for heat treating techniques and equipment, worth every penny.
