I bought some stuff at a yard sale from an old moldmaker. Prices not great but doable. Chatted awhile then found a Machinist hand book and bought it. I had Him sign it and it made His day to be remembered that way.

Long before I had access to the Internet I did not know Propane was harmful to welding hose. I swapped my Acetylene tank out for Propane. It's been about 30 years ago and still using the same hose with no signs of a problem.
