Hello everyone! Bonjour � tous! At school, I learned to solder with a
combination of natural gas and oxygen, which was great. In my
workshop though, I can’t use this combo because there is no gas line
connected to the building.
At first, I bought a soldering kit that used acetylene and oxygen,
but it’s too strong for my purposes. I didn’t use it ten times
because of that - by the way, my kit’s for sale (see end of message).
Now, I’m looking for a new soldering kit that would fit my needs. At
first, I thought of buying an acetylene/air kit, but some people told
me that black fumes came out of the flame (like when you light an
acetylene/oxygen torch before mixing the gas with oxygen), and some
other told me the opposite.
What’s the truth about it?
I’d like to work with an acetylene/air torch because the heat
comparison between that and a natural gas/oxygen torch is similar.
If you have an answer, or other suggestions, please contact me. I’m
not equipped for casting, so I don’t necessarily need a gas/oxygen
combination. My workshop being at home, I’m restricted in the oxygen
