    Default Torch Reel

    I got tired of moving around the oxy/acet bottles and torches. I made a cylinder rack and bolted it to the wall and installed a hose reel above it.

    Ya can't beat that.

    Get some bigger tanks when it allows & you'll really be cookin'
    So you're telling me...You're not nostalgic? Then, give me another word for it......

    That is a great idea. It beats moving the tanks constantly.

    Lightbulb Safety Suggestion

    Any chance of those getting knocked over out of there?If so you may want add a chain up higher or also safety caps.I maybe being over cautious, but i,d hate to see a valve shear off a tank.

    Why are the tanks not sitting on the ground? I'm thinking along the same lines as Admweld, this just doesn't look entirely safe.
    Obviously, I'm just a hack-artist, you shouldn't be listening to anything I say .....

    JS.; Ditto, That's the first thing I thought of also !
    I'd put that setup on the floor with a chain around it !

    Same here , did you see the mythbuters knock the valve off of a 80 cf tank?
    It went through a block wall and made a hole in the block 3 or 4 feet behind it..
    That episode made me think twice about laying a tank in the back of my truck when getting re-fills..
    I use small 40s but the way the 80 went off I think a 40 might get in the cab with me..
