I just picked up a A/O set from an Ebay auction ( 120099124418 ) and I believe that the handle is a Harris, though its marked Sears Roebuck & Co.
It only has a brazing tip and what I need is a small cutting torch to go on the handle. Its definately not a Victor style based on the way the mixer handle attaches to the brazing tip, handle has an OD thread, but much larger in diameter than a Victor of the same size. Looking Harris handles on Ebay also leads me to believe its a Harris.
Checking out the Sears online store..again they look like Harris may have made them.
Does anyone have a spare or unwanted Harris cutting torch I could beg, buy or swap for? This rig will be mounted on a welded aluminum portable frame and kept in my service truck. Its small and light and only needs to be able to cut up to about 1/2" at max..mostly just the usual 1/4" stuff one finds in light mainainence duty.
Or even a complete torch, but having a brazing tip or small rosebud would be nice as I occasionally have to heat and pull gears, etc etc
Anyone have suggestions for a do it yourself portable rig to hold the bottles, hose, striker and so forth. Something to protect the gauges would be prefered, else Ill have to remove them all the time. Bottles dont have provision for protective caps..and both IRRC are marked Pestolite on the valve bodies.
I can pretty much fabricate anything so suggestions would be appeciated. Pictures will be praised
