I have seen, but not used, an Acetylene generator and I have a nice collection of carbide lamps BUT both are useless without carbide and that is what there is a shortage of. The Acetylene shortage, contrived or real, would actually better be described as a shortage of carbide since that's where the Acetylene comes from.
