rose bud

Also keep in mind that a rose bud requires a very large flow of fuel.
A single small (approx 125 cubic ft) acetylene cylinder will produce
about 1/7 of it's capacity when full per hour. Check the specs of
your rose bud tip to see what it requires. Short duration with one
single will be OK but not much more

Actually the tank will produce whatever you ask of it, full or not, BUT to ensure that you don't have the potential for an explosion you should not draw *more* than 1/7 of it's capacity per hour. So if you have a 75cu-ft bottle do *not* draw more than about 10cf/h from it. Or run it at higher than 15psi for that matter. Ken

I stand corrected on the flow capacity. I should have added the word "safely" deliver 1/7 the capacity of the cylinder.
