Torch Hoses

I recently replaced my 1/4" oxy/act torch hoses, I noticed that
there were 2 different sets available for the same length, size,
appearance etc. When I inquired I was told that the grade T set was
rated for use with LP (propane) in addition to acetylene where the
grade R set was for acetylene only. The cost was about double if I
remember correctly. One other item which I haven’t seen mentioned
lately is to have an oxygen rated soap bubble solution with the torch
set to safely check for leaks.

I very much appreciate the safely info and all who share it. I
believe that tools are to be respected and used intelligently.
Ignorance and stupidity are the cause of most accidents, not the
tools, chemicals, machines etc. we use.
