    I purchased a new kit yesterday. I phoned one of our construction guys to ask where to set the pressures and he said 7psi and 14psi. I guess he read the book you mentioned.

    yes, reg. pressures should be equal. that is supposed to create a "clean" burning flame.

    as far as high heat, low heat, if I'm doing TXv's, etc., I wan the highest heat possible, so I can be in and out as quick as possible.

    Old debate, I was a Welder before being a HVAC Tech (Company Owner) soooo you know what my opinion is. I use a Turbo some times but I personally like the Oxy-Act. best. I almost see the Turbo torch as a small Rosebud!
    Yes, I know I Shouldn't But I Just Can't Help Myself...

    For oxy-acetylene I usually do about 5 and 5.

    Tried running 5 and 5 with my rig rather than 7 and 14 and it was so much easier to control. Thanks guys.
