    I read they use it for underwater cutting and special welding applications like aluminum or lead. It's considered the " holy frail " with only two by-products. Energy release in the form of heat and plain old clean pure water.

    Not sure how you're going to get the work done, or blow the flame out. But rock on. Call me in 50 years. LOL

    Maybe our discrepancy is because my background is much more varied than whatever it is that you do. Or that I was using torches before I knew what sex was. Just a thought.
    Again if you need more heat get a bigger tip... Not gonna continue to bicker with someone who I agree with 99% of the time. I stick with what the manufacturer's recommendations are. Not some backwoods shade tree Theory that anything outside of what is recommended works. I'll end this by saying to each his own there guy. Later.

    Hydrogen works okay for simple soldering, but if you try to cut steel, it feels like you're doing something wrong. Because the steel doesn't stay hot. I was in a facility one time where that's what they had in their maintenance shop.

    If you were a real tech, you'd solder a relay on that board and call it good to go.

    I do a triple evac with nitro to remove non condensables.

    I decided to start over with a new setup from United. I want to make sure I don't have the same issues. How large of a tip can I go with an mc tank? Am I ok to use the small rosebud? I know a lot of guys use it here without any issues.

    Technically#2 Rose bud. #4 welding. I've used a #4 rose bud, but it drains the mc tanks quicker then usual.
