Bought one of those sets for my Son. Got a fitting to equalize the oxygen from a bigger tank. Changed the acetylene bottle for a LP bottle. Can fill the LP from my big tank. (I made the LP tank from a 3" pipe with a almost 1/2 wall. then welded 1/2 plugs in each end put a regular LP Grill bottle valve in the end. Works good. Can carry it anywhere. It always has had enough gas and oxygen to complete any repair for the last 5 yrs or so.) Maybe you can find a LP bottle the rite size, to go in your carrier. Always let it equalize before we use it.

You can't weld with propane only cut and then you will need a 2 piece cutting tip.

You do realize your homemade LP tank is highly illegal? What do you mean by equalize? Filling smaller cylinders from larger ones is fairly common with the right apparatus but once it's filled, you don't have to wait for it to equalize.

I guess I lied about it. The LP tank. It takes a while for the oxygen bottle to get the same pressure as the larger one. Kinda like filling a tire from a air tank.

It's about volume. It shouldn't take long to fill a 20 cu ft oxygen from a larger cylinder unless that cylinder isn't much bigger or is low on pressure. The volume of a tire is much more than the air tank. The size of the orifice makes a difference too.
