Default Victor SuperRange

Look what I got!
I'm pretty excited, but first I need to learn how to use it

I paid 277.59 before tax

Sweet!. That's a nice set for sure. Just don't burn the house down.

I agree, but it looks like it's the super range II....still a good set....do you have your tanks and a cart ?....if not then that $300.00 won't seem like so much after you price out the rest of it :evil:....make sure you know what you are doing before opening the valves for the first time....even better get someone with some experience and know how to show you....

You know I have never had a new torch, the close as I got was to have mine rebuilt. It looks like it has built in flash back valves? Very nice set

I've have had a Victor set for about 20 years, works great, about 2 years ago my LWS had brand new mid size Smith sets with hoses and regulators for $100, factory close outs, so I bought one, and I can't get to cut as nice as the Victor, is the Smith set defective? or is it I'm so used to the Victor? The Smith is usable, I just seem to reach for the Victor, the other Smith set I have works great.

Oooooo, I likey! Even has a rosebud. 84Zmike's right though. If you don't already have the tanks, you're in for a shocker! I know I was.

Nice set Bender.

Jack,

Maybe your $100 Smiths torch is set up for propane. I know my lws had a killer deal on them a while ago because nobody wanted to use propane.
