I have an oxygen and acetylene setup made by victor. I do not do very much cutting. Just a hobby. I got a victor oxygen regulator and victor acetylene regulator from e=bay. It's the big regulators that go with the journeyman setup. The torch is the 315 model and 2460 head. Before I just had a firepower torch and never noticed the oxygen consumption.'
The welding supply I should go through four oxygen to one acetylene. I have the big bottles. Anyway the problem is that for what I'm cutting I'm using way to much oxygen..... In about an hour of cutting and standby, which is about fifteen minutes of actual cutting, the pressure dropped from 500psi to 250 one day and from 250 to about
100psi the second. I've been told the way I use the torch, I shouldn't have to change oxygen bottles in over a week. At the way it seems like I'm going though oxygen, I''m gonna be broke quick.
Anyway, I have the oxygen output set a 25 psi. I'm using a 00 or 01 tip. I've put soap on all the fittings and probably everywhere I shouldn't. But no leak. The output pressure holds for quite a while when the torch is shut off. When the tank is shut off, the high pressure side bleeds off a little but not really that much. What am I overlooking? Also, if I need o-rings, where can I buy them online. The welding supply, airgas used to fix them right there, but now they a sending them out to be fixed. Any help?????????
