    I've worked in both fields and trust me, those auto manuals are probably about as accurate as the plumbing ones (I've never seen a plumbing one). They assume everything goes perfectly which of...

    The tanks alone aren't worth much. If you have a decent torch setup on it it's probably worth $60-$100. More if you have extra tips.

    We aren't allowed to use bushings at all here. I'm not really sure what the reason is. Reducing couplings, elbows, and tees are perfectly acceptable however. I'm sure it's the same where you are...
