    Oxy/acet all the way. I like being able to dial in the amount of heat I want.

    I've never heard that one before but I like it. Thanks for the tip

    I have always used oxy/acet. & to lessen the chance of overheat & bubbling the filler, making it porous, as a previous poster mentioned, I like to adjust the torch to a nuetral flame & then give it just a bit more acet.

    I've always used oxy/acet. And the turbos for soft solder.
