  • Craftsman Oxy-mapp Gas Torch Outfit

    i recently bought a craftsman oxy-mapp gas torch and im wondering if it is good enough to do minor welding and brazing the book lists the top temp at 5300 degrees and if i remember right u only need 2800 to braze and 400o to weld. any insight will be highly appreciated
    to weld or not to weld that is the question

    Should be plenty hot enough. It's only about 300° cooler than oxy-acetylene.

      Is this the kind with disposable cylinders? If so, a friend of mine had a little Bernzomatic brand brand with the throwaway cylinders. You will drive yourself to the poorhouse buying oxygen for it, them little tanks were about $10 and they don't last long at all. It had a very small tip that may be well suited for very small applications, but, overall it's an expensive to operate toy.

              radioshack used to and still may offer the same item. When I owned one I thought I was the "bomb" then my wallet got empty and I then felt that ther is no replacement for the real deal.
