I just set up my Smith little torch with an oxycon.It uses propane as the fuel. I took all the precautions, from keeping the #20 cylinder on the balcony, flashback arrestor for the fuel line and a good quality regulator. I checked every part with soapy solution and the hose by submerging it in water.
I heard all kinds of stories with hoses exploding, catching fire, flashbacks. However, I am not sure that is something likely to happen with the little torch as we’re talking about such low pressures, compared to welding torches.
Has anyone here had a fire incident with the little torch so far?
