Ok still waiting on welding info but I got more info on the cutting aspect for anyone who is interested. I know it's not answering "the question of the day" but I'm trying. Here is the email I have so far.

"The flame temp is 6100 and we put oxygen back into the atmosphere(12.5%). I have the settings so dialed in that I am seeing no slag...seriously. *We tested with the US Navy and we did 1/2 plate, 10 inches in 19 seconds. That is flying but we were 1000% less toxic than liquid petroleum.. Aka propylene,propane etc.. If you need reports from the labs? I will bring them with me. "
