want to move my home studio outside on my spacious balcony, but not
sure how to safely set up my acetylene tank for outdoors.
Lisa, I can only suggest what works for me (since I have to use my
acetylene torch outside). I got a large plastic garbage can, the
kind that has a "lockable" top, put some bricks in the bottom (for
stability), and set the acetylene torch and hoses inside, on top of
the bricks. The torch is thus protected from the wind, rain, and snow
we have here, and whenever I can get outside to use it, I just take
the top off the garbage can, turn on the tank, and it's good to go.
I also use an old propane grill to hold my soldering equipment. I
keep it covered with a plastic grill cover when not in use.
All the best,
