Hi Richard, Regarding blowing your hose… The reason for this is
that if there are any particles of rubber or dirt in the lines they
can plug up your orifices. That’s the reason for the purge. To do
this, I would recommend dry compressed air. A local machine shop or
welding supply store could probably help you out with this. A
welding supply shop can be a valuable source of and
Now about protecting your eyes… Safety glasses/goggles should be
fine for most work. If you ever plan to use oxy/acetylene, you will
need welders goggles. Oxy/acetylene burns much brighter and is used
for welding steel and/or platinum work.
Good luck. Hope this helps.
