    PL-DLXPT Torch Kit Swirl ....Good or Bad setup for newbie?

    http://victortechnologies.com/turbot...odID=0386-1397

    What you guys think about this setup? It seems super compact and lightweight. I am thinking between this setup or a VICTOR TURBOTORCH TDLX2010B setup or a LENOX LX514B MODEL 21837LX514B.

    They all are around the same price 220-230ish.

    It looks like the Victor is only mapp and LP, with that you cant braze much over 3/8 copper. I struggled through a season with an acetylene Turbo torch once and hated it, very loud and poor heat control. My advise would be to spend a little more and go Oxy/acetylene. With a little practice you'll get a better result and spend a lot less time keeping things from burning up.
