With your help I have purchased a Meco Midget torch. It’s all hooked
up and ready to go. I read the archives for how to light it. I have a
refilable propane & oxygen tanks. And am having problems with blowing
out the torch when I add the oxygen.
But I am still confused…the tips I got with it came from Grobet
and are: Tip 1/0. tip 1, tip 2 They appear to be the N1, N2, N3 tips
in the Otto Frei catalog & are the ones that came with the torch.
I looked in Otto Frei at the NG tips, but they say they are for
"natural gas only". But! in the archives I find everyone referring to
using NG tips from Otto Frei with propane on the Meco Midget.
Has the catalog changed and the NG’s are no longer for propane, is
the catalog wrong?
One other concern/thought…when I hooked up my hoses to the torch
the hoses all ready had a fitting on them. So I took off the fitting
that came with my torch. To my naked eye, the fittings on the hoses
had a slightly larger oriface then the torch fitting. Is this a
Is it supposed to be this complicated?
