  • That’s the one. I have found the kit for £113 with £28 for a pair of refills all delivered. I understand what you’re saying but I’m reluctant to spend too much before I know if I’m any good at it and how frequently I’ll use it. I’m more concerned about getting a kit that is capable first and foremost.

    I think I’ve read that the torch and cables in the oxyturbo kit can be used with propane too so that could be an option if the costs start mounting.

  • I’m sure you could do something with it but I think you’d quickly be wishing you’d just ponied up for the oxy propane stuff.

    When I wanted to upgrade from a mapp torch I looked at them but once I saw the cost of gas bottles I just decided it wasn’t worth it.

    You’d need a pair of regulators to use the torch and lines with bigger bottles so that’s going to be £75-100, probably some proper flashback arresters, another £30, couple quid for paracetamol because different threadings on the fittings will be a headache...

  • It turns out my landlord has a set he has let me borrow, going to test it out. He really likes it for lead welding as a roofer.
