Question

Does this kit come with both reverse flow check valves AND flash back arrestors??

I read in the online manual that the oxygen and fuel control valves have built-in reverse flow check valves. But, I also see two separate pieces (page 11) (not identified as anything) that appear to already be on the torch handle attached to the incoming side of either control valve. Are those flashback arrestors?? But, it also appears those same two pieces are shown to be assembled to the regulator (page 21) and are also called reverse flow check valves. If this kit does not have flash-back arrestors, what Victor part number could I purchase to put arrestors on this kit and where would they/should they be installed???

While it may be possible to use this torch to solder silver, in most cases this unit would be too large and awkward for use with jewelry.

answer 3
As A jeweler, what would you be using the torch for... Most torches are just as safe as the handler, but if your only needing the torch to do small jobs, try considering picking up a Bernzo-Matic torch. Its a small torch head that fits on top of a Propain Mix Cylinder.
