    Confused uniweld oxy/fuel torch set

    Im buying my first oxy acetylene torch set this week and decided to go with a uniweld patriot kit with metal carrier. Does any one know if check valves and flame arrestors are built into the 71 torch handle, like on the cutskill brand? It looks like none of the uniweld kits come with them.

    Thanks for the replys. Im surprised they sell the kits with out arresstors or checks included. I think im going to go with a cutskill with the smaller sized j torch handle. It looks like uniweld specialty tips are interchangeable with victors j sized handle.

    Most of the time I work smart not hard. And when you get it done right the first time you have time to play

    I need to buy them for mine. I am amazed they sell them without. I just never remember until I have a backfire.
