Re: Re: Little Torch Handle Getting Hot

Thank you Fred,

I'll have it checked out as soon as I can and report back.

Re: Little Torch Handle Getting Hot

Debra,
Fred is right, with one other consideration. If the acetylene has also been sitting for awhile, it can degrade and would possibly burn hot. If a gas tank is stored, the lower the pressure, the greater chance of degrading or even contamination (depending on the gas).
