I am new to the forum.
I just bought an air / acetylene torch and wondered what the
regulator pressure should be at. I read anywhere from 3 to 4 or 10
to 11. I will be using tips 00, 0, and 1. Is there a certain pressure
it has to be on depending on # of tip?
Also, when shutting down for the day, what is the best way to get all
pressure out of the hose. I have been turning off the tank, lighting
the torch and letting it burn down until all that is left is a small
flame and pressure is at zero. Do I need to do anything else? I hear
some people shut the tank off and just open the torch to let out the
gas. I have my setup in my basement and have a gas furnace and water
heater and I am afraid if I just let the gas out, it will blow the
house up I do not have any ventilation down there, a couple
windows, but winter is coming and it will get a bit cold down there
if I leave them open. I am still a bit uneasy with using my torch and
hopefully it will get better. Please give my any help you can so I
don’t blow myself up.
