Hello Folks, My name is Luke, and I am a welding Student in northern Colorado. I recently picked up a couple of torches to start working at home. The first is a Harris 63. They don't seem to make the 63 any more, but they do make the 63-2 which from photos looks exactly the same. The one I got has the cutting attachment, but no welding tips or mixer. What kind of mixer and tips do I need for this (generic are best, as I am on a student budget)? None of the welding supply shops in town carry Harris torches so I have to order what I need on the net.
I also just got a Meco Aviator. I really like this little torch as it is very small and light weight, but The ports where the hoses screw on are quite a bit smaller then on my Harris. Is it kosher to buy or make a converter to screw on to these so I can use my larger size hoses and gauges, or am I going to blow myself up? Also, are the welding tips from the Harris compatible with those of the Meco? Thanks for any info!
