    No flame required spotty, acetylene exiting at higher pressures will ignite from the friction caused hitting the air molecules. It’s one of the most unstable substances known to man, or women.

    For oxygen tanks, >>>> Bring peanut oil up to 550*F and slowly lower tank into cooker being careful not to splash any hot oil on your new "I'm An Idiot" apron.

    It is kind of a secret among the bottled gas people but when your fusible plug blows you can just stick some chewed gum back in there

    Don't you guy's up north have problems with your acetylene coming out of the bottle? We used to use butane for heating but when it gets really cold... that's when we switched to Propane...Just like the King of the hill guy. I had a 2000# clorine cylinder leak at work because someone put a steam hose on it and melted the lead plug. What a mess.
