    Any favorite small o/a torches (MC tank) with carrying case?
    I want to put my Uniweld set out to pasture.

    But I do have a couple Turbotorch oxy acet rigs that have held up pretty good, but they are like everything else, who knows who owns them now and where they are built

    The air/acetylene from Harris looks good
    The tips sound smoother than turbo torch

    I know this will sound kind of cheesy,but one weekend I was using my torch in the shop and forgot to put it back in the truck, and sure as hell I needed a torch for my first call. So I went to a big box and bought a swirl tip, that used mapp or LP, it had about a 3 foot hose and a clip to hook it on you belt, it was about 40 bucks, it was handy as hell especially on roofs, I have brazed 1 1/8 with it with out any problems

    But I hadn't used it for years and was going to use it this fall to light the pilot on the shop furnace, and the ****ing regulator is now leaking, well not really unless it is leaking in the landfill

    Was Harris the one that had the two part burning tip? I did not like that style.

    Yes
    Just like turbo torch
    But the tips are put together better. Inferno is what they call them
