Default Smoke Wrench

I have the small tanks for a oxy/ace torch.
Looking for a setup to do a little of every thing from cutting inch to gas welding.
Who has what and the pros and cons?

I have the Harbor freight small setup for like 4 years now. I fubar'd the acetylene pressure guage and it reads 5 psi too high. have yet to replace it I just compensate for it.
works great tho. I have cut 1/4 inch with it just fine. mostly I use for heating tho. works great and my local welding supply said all the fittings and gauges are of standard design and easily replaced if need be. just remember you exchange your acetylene tank each time.

I have the small set from TSC. Don't know the brand. They work quite well for most garage projects and are small enough to keep in the trailer when on the road.

They are good for heating and rough cutting.

Mine are Harris. I have had them for almost 20 years. I used them a ton until I got the plasma cutter. Now like mentioned they are used for general heating and quick no care cuts.

Thanks for the input, are there any special adapters i will need to get full size gauges to use with these small tanks or is it a standard thread?
