I just received a Smith Silversmith air acetylene torch, with lots of
tips as a present… Only problem is that it did not come with any
directions and I am puzzled as to how to attach the torch tips to
the handle. With my faithful, old Prestolite, I merely screwed them
In. Tried attaching one of the tips of the Silversmith to the handle,
but decided that before I ruin it to ask how it is done properly.
There is a knurled disk on each of the tips What is its function?
I was told that all I had to do is to push the tip into the handle.
Tried that and it fell out… Time to get an expert opinion.
