to Answer one of your "Q's Shad88

When Cutting the sound should be just under a roar.

If you have too much Gas & or Oxy you will here the flame adjust it back until you can't hear it & it will not blow itself out when you hit the Oxy / Cutting lever.

Here is a previous thread on this subject.

Rule # 1 is safety!
that one is most important
Eyes hands feet clothing to start.

Prepare surrounding area making sure that you will not start a fire /explosion while you are burning / welding.
Anything that can burn should not be in the same area.

PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE remove the Regulators when transporting. not only is it a major D.O.T. Violation its just plain stOOpid to do so., but ..Yet ...I see it almost everyday some Bubba Taking his torches for a ride in the back of a pick up & the regs on


Too much Oxy when cutting cools the metal too fast & does not let it flow out.

Good Luck & Be safe!
