Hi Heat Gas/Air Torch

I have acquired a “HI Heat” model D gas/air torch (at a garage sale) and would like to use it with propane. Do I need a regulator in addition to the one on my 5 gallon propane tank? If so, what’s the recommended psi setting? Also, for the air side, is compressed air what is called for and what psi might be appropriate?

I would be most appreciative of any help and advice.

I would suggest taking the torch to your local air gas supplier (welding supplier) and they will advise (and sell) what you need. I doubt if these questions can be safely answered here. They are usually very helpful and knowing what to do is part of their job.
