Propane is stored as a liquid and oxy is stored as a gas. You will go through many tanks of oxygen for every 30 gal. tank of propane.

I agree that a pressure of 10/20 is way too high. Try something in the range of 4 propane and 8 oxy. Then you get a nice bushy flame not too large. Later with more experience you might want to do larger beads and turn the flame up some.

Anyway, start out with less pressure from your tanks.

Smile Re: Setting up new Oxy/fuel torch

This is all so interesting. I am using a hothead torch at this time, but I intend to get a better torch as soon as I can afford one.

Have a great day
