A $500.00 bill will get you a hand full of change for a set of tanks, a good torch set will be a little less. Watch around Christmas time, they usually go on sale then. If he will be doing any heating get a set with the rosebud.

I always had 2 types of tips, the cutting tip and the welding tip, is the rosebud tip the welding tip? And if it gets time for him to get a set he will have to do the legwork but it is kind of hard to go very far when you are driving a one horsepower buggy. Just trying to give him a ball park figure.

Good of you to help out your friend.....sounds like an Amish fellow with the one hp available..(oh, crap, I just misspelled - one hp...used an o after the h...really, no offense intended! But regarding tips- usually several welding/heating tips- ...ie, heating/welding tips available per size of the torch- depending on how much heat you need to generate, from soldering to really big time heating to straighten bent stuff! Or weld it back together. Cuttings tips, again, available in several sizes, are just meant for cutting. Rosebud is the tip you use to generate more extreme heat to heat a bigger area so you can bend a bigger piece of steel- either back to original, or where you want it to be. Each tip has a different operating pressure range, both oxy and acetylene, and comes with the manual to show you how to use it. Some use propane instead of acet....lower cost, but just for cutting up....like scrapping. Cost of torch set? I have no idea- bought my first in 1967, last one in late 80s, when parts were out for the first set. Same with tank costs- first were small so they fit in the trunk of a 65 Mustang, before farming.... 72, started farming, finally had a reral home, switched tanks to the next bigger ones- fit in the SHOP!.

Yes, he is Amish and he knows of places to get the gas, just had never gotten to where he had felt the need for one enough for him to take a day off carpenter work to drive around checking prices but after having to learn to do more of the repair work on his old horse drawn machinery he is just starting to think about getting a unit.
