I am thinking about buying a low-cost oxy-acetylene rig. I need something for heating stuck bolts, brazing, heating steel to bend it, and for cutting 1/4" or thinner steel. It would see only light and occasional use less than once a month.
What are your thoughts about this unit at Northern Too

What is the typical routine for buying oxygen and acetylene at a local supplier? The only thing I am familiar with is buying C25 shielding gas for my welder where I purchase a full cylinder from a local supplier. When it's empty, I bring it back and get a full bottle for only the price of just the gas, which is fairly low cost.
I assume it's the same for O/A?
