Quick Sissy

I was scouting for months trying to snag a good deal for an acetylene tank to no avail, turns out, since I wouldn't really be doing much cutting, I can opt for a propane tank instead. I have an extra one at home so I dragged it to the shop, got an adapter, and popped my first blue flame. Worked great and I finally had the chance to break in the gears for this particular project. No biggie but lots of fun to do.

This was supposed to be a longer piece but towards the end of I decided for a better configuration, safety issues being the concern. So late in the afternoon I had to redo the bends again. Doesn't matter. Turned out more sturdy than the previous one. Raw steel. Hope Borgs decides to chrome it.
