Default Got to try out the Little Torch

Finally, late this afternoon all my bits and pieces to hook up the Little Torch without butchering any hoses arrived. Found a barbecue regulator for like $13 versus $101.50 for the "Official Smith" regulator. Works like a champ whoulda thunk it Pretty impressed with it tiny little needle flame and I'm supplying oxygen using my concentrator so no oxygen to buy I took a bunch of pics but, Winders is being a total PITA ever since I upgraded to 10 finding and posting pics can be nigh on impossible if photoviewer refuses to cooperate.

I'd love to see the pics when you have a chance. I know how much of a PITA it can be to get them posted sometimes.

How much volume/flow can you get out of that concentrator?

It's rated for 5liters/minute plenty for the Little Torch

Real question is does it supply enough for the torch and you at the same time?

I did not know these things supply oxygen pure enough to use with a torch.

Cute little torch. Is that for jewelry?

Jewelry, Art work, musical instrument repair any kind of small fine work. A guy on YouTube that repairs all sorts of brass band horns is where I picked up on the Oxygen Generator trick. I have mine for sleeping at night I should have a CPAP. But, the DOT is a total PITA when it comes to being diagnosed with sleep apnea. The concentrator is a workaround my doc came up with to keep them out of my ass.
