I use an air/acetylene torch myself. I can never go back to Mapp, let alone propane.
I used acetylene when I was doing a lot of soldering for a company. Then I went to propane when working on my own projects and nearly fall asleep when heating the joint.
I want to take a step up from propane. Is MAPP the way to go? I would like your opinions on this kit:
Thanks for any replies!

that rig will probably be fine for you.
That is the type of rig I use most of the time.
Doing repair plumbing I might be sweating 8-10 joints max on a job and that rig moved my acentylene rig to the way back of the truck then into the garage...
I haven't used it in years...
Buddy of mine has this kit and it is damn cool. People think he can wear it like a jetpack and take off or something!

I just post cuz I like to see my avatar.
Well, there is no more "MAPP" gas, but the MAPP+ is close to it. I have not used my acetylene torch in so many years that the hose is probably rotten. I use my hand held swirl tip Turbotorch with MAPP for EVERYTHING, and all sizes up to 1 1/2".

I like that kit in the link or the Bernzomatic as well,
The portable mapp is just the way to go.
Easy to carry around and fast to work with,
I think you can't go wrong with that kit!
Hope that helps!
