Now that you brought it up, will propylene bring a neutral flame so you can gas weld?
Never saw this Brian, no you cannot weld with it, but not because of a neutral
flame. Flow rates are too high.

Since I have almost never welded with Acetylene since I got out of the Navy,
and have yet to have a use for it. I am always debating making the switch to
propylene. I do not have a supply issue, but that is a good point. I mostly
cut and heat with it so for me, it is an ideal option. I also like the fact that I
do not have to worry about pulling more gas than a acetylene cylinder can
handle. Because I have done that more than a few times and the big
cylinders are a PITA to handle.
