The portable oxyacetylene welding equipment outfit consists of an oxygen cylinder and an acetylene cylinder with attached valves, regulators, gauges, hoses, a welding torch, a selection of welding tips, a striker or spark lighter(fig. 5-5), a good pair of welding gloves, a pair of shade 5 goggles and the standard protective welding clothing. This equipment may be temporarily secured on the floor or mounted on an all welded steel truck. The trucks are equipped with a platform to support two large size cylinders. The cylinders are secured by chains attached to the truck frame. A metal toolbox, welded to the frame, provides storage space for torch tips, gloves, fluxes, goggles, and necessary wrenches.
When using portable oxyacetylene welding equipment all Oxyacetylene welding safety procedures should be followed.
