    I'd tell him that he probably could get fine miters but that would take an incredible amount of time. I'd also tell him that I'd never tried one for the job, so don't know for sure. And yes, I'd...

    I know the advice he would have gotten, because I got pretty much the same thing myself and have seen it given to many others. In short, the advice is that without a full oxy-acetylene torch set-up,...

    A company called REG made cages with a little spring-loaded gadget that locked the bottle into place, petty much like you describe. Most of them were chromed steel, though they also made some in...

    IMO you should heat it back up, pull it apart, clean it thoroughly, and start over. Otherwise you'll never really be sure what you've got.

    Also, in my experience, propane just doesn't get hot...

    I really don't get why folks are stirred up about this. I mean, the guy wants to use a disk on the road. It's not exactly a novel idea. Assuming he figures out how to glue on a tire it will work...
