Let me introduce myself. I’m Richard Paille, owner of Paige Tools.
We produce special, multi-port Tips for the Meco Midget, Little Torch
& Hoke specifically for LP or Natural gas combined with oxygen.
I noticed your post on the Ganoksin site in reference to our Torch
Tips. Possibly you were referring to the powerful “MA” Tips in your
posting? Our MA Tips were designed to be attached to the standard
length neck on the Meco Midget. We also produce an extended neck for
the Meco but many people find it a bit long combined with the longer
flame size output of the MA Tips.
I’d like to pass along a word of caution about using your Meco
Midget (any Torch actually) without a Tip attached. Torches are
engineered to work within specific parameters of gas pressures and
gas volumes. The needle valves are designed to meter flow rates in
conjunction with attached Tips. Operating your Torch without a Tip
that meets the design parameters of the Torch is dangerous!
I believe you’re using LP gas & oxygen? Propane or natural gas
Torches preform much better with multi-port Tips than single hole
Tips. Without any Tip you are basically emulating a single hole
"Tip" with a very large diameter orifice that surpasses the design
criteria of the Torch. I would be glad to send you one of our MA
Tips (your choice, MA-1 or MA-2) for Free, shipping included. (MA-2
produces the largest flame) although the MA Tips were not designed
with a central hole, like our “M” series multi-port Tips, they
surpass the heat output of all Meco Midget, single Tips and greatly
improve flame profiles when burning LP or natural gas with oxygen.
MA Tips can also be used for soldering, annealing or melting. Some
Torch applications require flames to have a more focused central
cone so the M series Tips would be best. Our M-4, Tip produces about
the largest (central cone) flame the Meco Midget can correctly meter
burning the fuel gasses we support.
Use your Torch safely and keep a Tip attached!
