Due to cost concerns the cutting alternative to Acetylene is overdue anyway. All I was trying to do was keep things honest as it is all too easy to get carried away with a new product and their sales tactics and when I see mis-information about a product I tend to get defensive, after all these guys could be tempted to spend money on this stuff so lets get the true facts out there as they are in the real world and not a sales brochure!

Unfortunately gas welding is not that big of concern anymore for most folks which is a true shame but that's another story for another time and place.
