Default national 6b psi????

I'm getting setup and have a national 6b. I have my o2 regulator and am wanting to know two things. 1. What psi should I have my gas and oxygen regulators set at? I read 5gas 10oxygen. Also can I use a preset 5psi regulator lime the kind on a grill? Thanks.

5 and 10 PSI is fine. Get a propane regulator and you must get flash arrestors.

Preset regulator will be fine, just be sure pressure is what you want, there is no changing a non-adjustable (sealed) regulator....

My concern with the preset 5 PSI regulator is with the flash arrestor he will be getting less pressure and Nationals don't like the pressure too low.
