Oxy-propane with a Smith AW1A?? any experience?
Neophyte/longtime lurker here. Slowly getting my equipment assembled.
Acetylene is tempo. unobtanium here in W. Mich. May become available this week, will see
I ended up with a Smith AW1A 'aircraft' handle to match a boxful of ancient acetylene tips I have. Reconditioned by the AO Doctor in Georgia. Thanks, Jim.
Looks as though there is a special LP pipe with interchangeable tips in the catalog at my LWS for this application.
Does anyone gave any experience with this?
Should I just wait for Acetylene to become available?
I took Doug Fattic's course earlier this year. He has mentioned that Oxy-Propane is used by his Ukrainian group and that it takes a little while to become comfortable with it. I will probably only build a few frames and am not quitting my day job just now.
Any advice will be appreciated. George
