Orca Torch - leak?
I'm having a confusing time setting up my Orca torch - I don't think it
should be this hard!! I used this design of torch in my silversmithing
classes and never had any troubles...
The handle attaches into the hose by a screw setting. I have screwed
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!
Take it all apart.
check the hose connections.
sometimes they have a shoulder that goes through the nut that screws
onto the hand piece.
Make sure its through the nut.
They jam up sometimes. and prevent the nipple from seating properly.
check that the hoses from the tanks? we call them cylinders here in
the UK, are connected theright way round,
i set up some propane and oxy tanks the other day and i had the hoses
back to front. the anti flash back connectors are one way valves and
being the wrong way round no gas came through!!.
hope this helps.
