We offer both single-stage and dual-stage regulators. Singlestage
regulators reduce the cylinder pressure to the outlet
pressure in one step. Dual-stage regulators do this in two
steps. Single-stage regulators are used for short-duration general
welding and cutting operations. If you are doing precision
welding a dual-stage regulator maintains consistent output
pressure for long durations.
Please note: Manufacturers change or discontinue regulator
from time to time without warning. As a result, we sometimes
have to change regulators (make and / or models), to be
able to continue offering you the most “bang for your buck.”

Here is a handy accessory that will save you time and frustration, and
will quickly pay for itself. The “gas economizer” instantly shuts off the
fl ow of the oxygen and acetylene when you place the torch on the
hanger, and relights the torch at exactly the setting you had when you
pick it back up. Perfectly.
Not only does this save time, but this easy-to-reach holder saves costly
fuel gases from being wasted, and saves wear and tear on your torch.
This device is commonly used in radiator shops, sculpture studios,
muffl er shops, body shops, and hot-working fabrication places where
the torch is needed all day long. Also known as the “eternal fl ame”
(referring to the pilot light that keeps the torch ready for action). Technically,
it is a double spring-operated shutoff valve controlling both the
oxygen and the acetylene gases, and is plumbed with hoses to a set
of welding bottles and standard regulators. The pilot mechanism lasts
best when plumbed to a small propane bottle.
operation: Connect a hose set from your gas rig to the gas saver.
Join another set of hoses from the gas saver to your welding torch.
Plumb your gas supply (small propane, or acetylene, or...) to the gas
saver for the pilot light, and light and adjust the size of the fl ame. Hang
your torch on the shutoff hook and adjust the swing and range of motion
on the hook. Set the torch for the fl ame needed and hang it up
– the torch goes out while the pilot remains quietly lit. Raise the torch
and touch the tip to the fl ame and – presto – your torch is lit every time!
