I'm sure I'll end up with some of those regs to add to my other Oxweld/Purox/Linde/Union Carbide gear.
You are welcome. When the time comes I would certainly lend any info I could.

They are very robust regulators. the design is pretty simple to.

for the last few years I have a standing search on Ebay for Oxweld 2 stage..

they usually list for good money.. and this one showed up new..


So, I put a bid on it for 150.00 and I was the only bidder. So, Now I have a complete 2 stage reg...

I guess I can take this off my saved searches.

it's an addiction... I am all done buying anymore. I'm actually going to sell off my single stage units now.

Besides that I have a regulator for every gas I use especially since you sent me over the O2 reg..


Argon, oxygen, CO2, helium.. I'm pretty much all regged up.

So what is a Oxy-Acetylene Blowpipe?

No it is used for cutting large thickness of steel. Kind of a long tube

Well this is getting confusing. I've always heard that called an oxygen lance.

I've heard Englishmen use the term, "Oxy/acetylene blow lamp", for the ones most of us have.

In the old days a lot of the lingo was the same. Oxygen lance, blow pipe.. Etc etc.. were exchanged.. it depended on where you lived...As well as job occupation.
