I've been practicing brazing with a borrowed oxy-propane torch, but it is very small (tanks and tips, I think it is meant for jewelry) and I want to purchase a set up of my own. I've looked around a lot and this seems like a pretty good price, but I could be wrong. What do you think, would I be better off buying one of those $100 sets online and just renting tanks or is this a quality set up? This will be used for hobby lugged and fillet brazed framebuilding on a small scale, couple frames a year maybe.
He said he would do $270 cash.
"Nice lightly used Smith Cavalier Oxy-Acetylene Gas Welding, Braising and Cutting setup that includes Tanks, regulators, hose, flash back preventors, torch with cutting and welding tips. It includes extra hose, glasses, striker and rods....
The torch body is the Smith AW1A airline style that takes their AW series tips. It's a pretty easy handling, high quality small-size torch handle."
