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.
