Default Re: Acetylene regulator

Buy the cheap (china made) on ebay if you don't use it daily.
Trust me the china made things are improving, and eventually you will drive a Chinese car in a few years !
Next year the "Lynk&Co" chinese car will roll off the chain in Belgium (in the Volvo plants)

First one in EU, more to follow, and unstoppable

OMG, that's a terrible thought.
I like my American built cars, as well as my VW diesel Rabbits.

Trotted out to check my regulators and found that both acetylene were single stage. The good USA brands at work were found to be single stage. Since the acetylene pressure is a fraction of the Oxygen, seems like an engineering overkill to bother with the second stage. Worth checking if the number of stages is at all an issue.
