MAPP/Oxy ? I want one of these mini torches next time. I used to have a HVAC torch set (Acetylene/Oxy) for brazing the tube work, it was cumbersome because of it's size. Your new setup is ideal for getting into tight areas.

My plan is to test it with the Bernzo tanks until I find a good deal on regs and larger tanks. I'll try it this weekend and post my thoughts.

Agreed.😆.
The HVAC setup is great for that purpose, but to try to braze smaller tubing is very awkward and the larger hoses work against you in certain situations.

Not yet. Work's been crazy right now. I'm hoping to get some practice in this weekend. I got my fingers crossed.

I don't have pics, but it should be heading your way today, or yesterday, LOL! Whatever Chicagoland gets, hits the East coast!

BigSki, check out my "New Project" thread

I did get a free set of small tanks, but waiting on the reg's. Hopefully some time next week. I've got a lot of ideas that I want to implement.

No enough progress. Still looking for other drivers / builders in the area to enjoy driving these great rigs.
