First--I would visit a few local dealers of the gasses--"welding supply
You're going to have to deal with someone for refilling-(or swapping)
See what brands of torches they carry & price them..--You can buy them
or shop E-bay or elsewhere for the same brand---replacement parts are
seldom needed in torches, but later on the critical "O" rings in the
replacement.---A few years later they won't remember whether you bought
it there or not, but if it is "their brand", they're much more likely to
assist you with the parts.
S*a*s , in the past has had a major mfgrs make their tools , but
incorporate a few
"bastard" sized components to force you to come back to them for
to the Wards cog-belt case in the other post..
I would definitely stay with one of the recognized brands , Victor,
Stay away from imports !!.
