  • Cutting tip

    I know this might not be the best place to ask this but can somebody tell me what you do with this tip? I have seen a lot cutting tips when I worked for my dad but he passed away recently and I never has a chance to ask him how to use it and what it is used for.

    Never seen one like that, shop modified maybe? Hopefully someone knows, I'm interested to know also.

      Probably not shop modified-I've seen them too but never used one and don't know their purpose-or if I did its long lost along with some of those other parts of my memory. 😊

          Maybe the flat part makes it slide better up against a guide.

            Thank you! Trivia question solved. Never worked around much sheet metal.

                Thanks. It's good to know. I've got one around here somewhere too and never knew what it was for. I think my father probably bought it.---Meltedmetal

                  I recently acquired one of these tips with a bunch of other stuff. I e-mailed some questions about it to Victor and was answered by John Henderson, product manager for gas equipment, who wrote this:

















                  The tip you are describing is our type 110 Drag Type cutting tip
                  It is designed to allow the tip to be placed on clean metal and drag the tip to make the cut

                  The highest point is the landing, or what would make contact with the plate
                  The second landing is the cutting oxygen orifice and the lowest landing is the preheat orifice
                  The tip is designed to have the preheat orifice placed in line with your cut
                  You would follow that direction (highest landing following the cut line, last)

                  The main issue surrounds the cutting oxygen orifice.
                  Today the smallest size tip we make is a size “0” which is designed to cut material 3/8” to ½’ thick

                  We have produced a size “00” in years past, that would allow cuts on material down to ¼’

                  This presents a problem cutting thinner material, i.e. sheet metal.
                  While it is possible, the kerf is normally larger than what would be desired

                  Torch angle should be perpendicular to your plate as you make the cut

                  Below is our standard tip chart. The 110 type follows the same operational requirements as our standard 101 series (end quote)

                    Guess Victor does not refer to them as Sheet Metal cutting nozzles.... but many others still do
