Acetylene Welding


Recommended Posts


don't know if many people on the list use acetylene for welding

but I was at Bunnings a couple of weeks back and noticed they are now

doing bottle-swaps for acetylene and oxygen.

This means that you don't need to rent the bottles anymore.

It seems it is a bit like the bbq gas bottles. They come in the D sizes for each

I think I figured out that if you are renting then payback is about 18 months

so if you want a bottle for an occasional weld then this might be good for you.

no affiliation with bunnings or coregas who are the company suppling them

thats good

I've been paying BOC the monthky rental, and for what I used it for,

it wasn't worth while

yeah BOC is only good if u need the cylinders for less than 2 years other wise much better buying the cylinders works out a lot cheaper
