    Torch flame is adjusted by turning valves on gas cylinders?
    No need to waste money on regulators or torches with valves.

    What book? I would agree something lost in editing.

    "Turn the valves on full....then increase the oxygen flow very slowly."

    Though, out of frustration I have adjusted my flame at the regulator with torch valves wide open. Helps determine the pressure the torch tip will take. When charts not available.

    That’s from an old Audel’s welders guide.
