Thread: Cap'n hook
01-12-2008, 08:56 PM #1
Last spring i purchased a new Uni-Weld brazing outfit with cap'n hook tip.
Never could get that tip burning right,the flames would go out or not all would light.Any advice from users,otherwise i like the smaller handle and tips better than my last set .

I turn the acetylene on until the black smoke goes away and then adjust the O2.
It works for me.Karst means cave. So, I search for caves.

Pressure too high.
These tips require very little delivery pressure. Uniweld website has recommendations.

I bought one of these cap-n-hook heads when they first came out and have used it mainly to take things apart. Its so important to apply even heat or youll tear the pipe. All in all i think its a good tool even at the $30.00 price tag.
