Trade / Sell Miller Auto-Darkening Helmet for Acetylene Torch
I'd like to trade someone my Miller auto-darkening helmet (Performance series, good mid-range, p/n 232035), preferably for components of an acetylene rig. I need the whole rig, so I'm open to all the components (combination torch and regulators, back-flash suppressors, etc), except for the bottles and the hoses. Whatcha got?
Helmet is in like-new condition, includes replacement plate cover, bag, etc. received with purchase. I purchased new a few years ago for a welding class, but has sat on the shelf since then. Helmet works great and is lightweight, but I'd rather set myself up with an acetylene rig, which I've had the most luck with and seems to be the best suited to what I need.
Out of curiousity, why don't more people use acetylene rigs? Is the per bead cost higher than other types? I've done a bit of it, but I haven't paid to fill bottles yet myself, so I'm not too sure how long the bottles last or what the approximate per bead / per cut cost might be.
