Sorry to bother you with what I’m sure is an obvious question, and
which I think I already know the answer too… but, I’m hoping you
can help. (For those of you who are in a hurry, just read the last
A while back I purchased the Advanced Soldering kit from RioGrande
(item 500172) imagining that the kit would include everything I
needed to solder (except of course canisters of fuel, since shipping
those would be troublesome). However, I was reading the manual for
the Smith Little Torch as I was preparing to set it up to go with the
disposable O2 and Propane canisters I got to go with it. If I’m
reading the instructions correctly I will need to get regulators to
use the torch.
I was hoping that the 2.1oz oxygen tank and the 16.9oz propane tanks
were at low enough pressure to use without the additional cost of
regulators (since I just finished university a few weeks ago and
don’t have too much disposable cash), but obviously I don’t want to
wreck anything (or anyone) by rushing into it.
So my question is: do I need to buy regulators to use the disposable
tanks with the Smith Little Torch?
