Your cutting torch has an ANM nozzle for acetylene.
Just get a PNM nozzle for your cutting torch. Get a mid-size nozzle - 3/32" - will cut whatever you like, and has enough size to heat things pretty well.
Also you shouldn't use an acetylene reg on a propane tank, it's just not good practice. The hoses are different (and will rot if you use an acetylene hose on propane) so treat regs the same way.
make sure it's all leak tested before you use it in anger - squirty bottle with soapy water is best for this, spray all over every joint and watch for bubbles.
and make sure you have some flashback arrestors on the reg end at least. They're cheap insurance against very nasty accidents!
Hi, yes I have replaced the hoses for brand new, propane hose.
But kept the acetylene regulator that came with the acetylene kit... is it dangerous to use that regulator on the propane bottle?
I also have arrestors fitted on the regulators.
thanks for the link to the cutting nozzles, I will get that, just in case one day I do need to cut something up, which I'm sure that day will come.
the main thing for me is heating rod up, that's the bit that I really want.
