I have been casting with acetylene about 3 times a week for a
year now and have never cleaned my torch tip. It seem to be
getting clogged up a bit. Can anyone advise me on the best way
to clean the tip.
Most welding supply houses sell a small set of files. Actually
they look like pieces of wire, various guages, that have about a
1 inch section of serarrations. The ‘wires’ are graduated in size
& are permanently mounted in their container which serves as a
handle when using them.
The idea is to start with the smallest one that will go into the
hole & progress up to the original size of the hole. Really work
fast & well. Can’t comment on cost, mine came with my torch. Just
as a guess though, I’d say under $10. They’ll last a lifetime.
You might try a burr, but be careful, you could end up with a
tip with the wrong sized hole/s.
