Default Orca Torch - leak?

I've had the exact same problem! Driving me crazy!!! =20
Ted=85much appreciate your time taken for recommendation, but I don't under=
stand =85 my hose is sealed not by a screw setting, but by inserting the fe=
male end from the Orca into the hose, which has a clamp that tightens with =
a screw fitting. =20
any chance you could try to explain what you mean by 'shoulder'?
I actually purchased a new Smith hose with screw endings, but no way could =
I get the female end to fit the new hose. =20
Now I'm wondering if the problem is because I don't have either a blow-back=
preventer or gauges, neither of which my teacher used, and when I asked th=
e store from which I purchased the Orca, they said that "everything was inc=
luded in the kit"!

I've asked my husband to take the whole kit and caboodle to local welding s=
tore for advice, while I am out of town. I'll let you know what happens if=
you want.

this in as far as it goes, but there is still some thread sticking out
and when I switch the gas on it leaks from here.
I do not know what is going wrong and it is driving me mad! I have
basically unpacked it from the box and put it together and it's just not
Can anyone help put me back on track??!!
Thank you thank you!
