Default Help!!!

I really am stuck with only you guys to talk to so please help me out. I currently run a brazing torch and want to upgrade to a 'proper' torch. I run one oxygen concentrator (5lpm) and would like a torch that does small boro as well, by small I mean about 1-2 inches if that. Is there such a thing?
I only want to have a play with boro so I wont be running my oxycon at full. What do you recommend and why?

Thankyou in advance folks, I wouldn't mind a used one either so if that is the way to go what should I look for?

PLEASE

You probably want to talk to Brent about a Betta. From what I understand, they work boro effectively that small on one concentrator, but I could be wrong about that aspect of the torch.

Yes, the Betta will work small boro very well with one 5 LPM concentrator and NG or low pressure Propane.

The betta might be your better choice with one concentrator...I worked on a bobcat but with boro It really worked best with 2 concentrators....with 2 it really rocked!
