Yeah, finishing the step. About that... I got more acetylene on the way home from work last night. Then did a little welding. Got to the point it would be no problem to finish it up this weekend. Saturday I'm going to "Sins of Steel" so no work until Sunday. About all that's left is to weld some plates on the frame. I went down and cut them out after work tonight. Then found a little more time so what the heck, I'll put at least one of them on tonight. Set up the torch, finished up welding one area I had left before the plate could go on, then shut everything down to get the plate set up. Went to relight the torch and HOLY CRAP the acetylene was running wide open. WTF? Shut it off at the torch. Looked at the regulator and the gauge was pegged. Shut it off at the tank. Checked the adjustment and it wasn't screwed in too far? Played around with it to find even with the regulator dialed all the way out, pressure would climb and I'd get flow at the torch if I opened the tank. Well THAT can't be good. Plus pegging the gauge made the new zero right around 7psi... Alrighty then. I won't be finishing the step this weekend either. Time for new regulators, which I'll probably order online since it's a pain to get to a welding shop when you have a day job. Oh well. I've been thinking about getting new ones for a while now anyway, these are probably 40 years old. I got them when I inherited my dad's welding rig. I replaced the torch with a Meeco Midget a bunch of years ago, and with the smaller torch got some smaller, lightweight lines. And of course the tanks have been replaced a few times, and now the regulators, but in my head it's still my dad's set up! I'm still using his cart after all. And the lighter thingamajig! Should probablyget new flints for that though, the way things are going that will be my next set back.
