Smith little torch gauges settings

I have posted before regarding my acquisition of a smith little
torch, but I have one more question so please bear with me. There
are two gauges on each tank, oxy/acetylene. What settings should
these gauges be set at?

Thanks again for your help.

It’s the complete FAQ for the Little Torch on Smith’s website,
including recommended pressure settings for the tips.

Gerry,

That depends on which size tip you are using. On tips 1 - 3 I use 5
psi for acetylene and 6 psi for oxygen. For tips 4-5 I use 6 psi for
oxygen and 8 psi for acetylene. I also have a multi-tip with 4
orifices and use 10 psi for acetylene and 14 psi for oxygen.
