OK, I know that after you light the acetylene, you are suppoed to adjust it until the smoke disappears and the flame moves away from the torch about 1/8", then bring the flame back to the torch and open the O2.
The problem is that I cannot get the flame to move away from the torch.
The acet tank is open about 1/2 turn, pressure is at 5, using a Harris #1 cutting tip.
I used other torchs before where I get the described flame movement, but I can't seem to get it on this one. So I just open the acet almost all the way, the adjust the O2 to a neutral flame.
Is it that big of a deal?
