Just received my torch from NGT. I ordered it last week.
I was really impressed when I got a phone call within a few hours of E-mailing a request for information.
Just wanted to give credit for fast and friendly service.http://ngtmodels.com/

What burner tips did you get? I use the 2942 most of the time and 2943 for big jobs. I have a 2944 but never used it.

I went with the general recommendation, 2942. Should be easy to add others as the need arises.
Of course, I'm a total novice at boiler making.

The 2942 will do a 2.5" copper pipe just fine. Probably all you'll need for Gauge 1 work.

Hi, Bob...


Just curious about what gas pressure you operate your burner at? I am just getting around to unpacking my old Sievert gear into the new workshop and notice I have the gas regulator screwed into almost max a 28psi. Seems to work okay but have long since lost the instructions.

Hi John: Don't know. My regulator does not have a gauge. I should put one in just to see.

Bob



P.S. Ain't moving fun?

Harvey - How does one place an order with NGT? Via phone? I see no ordering info on their web site.

Thanks.

Email them, I sent my shopping list of items needed, and got a reply with individual prices and a shipping quote. Paid with Paypal.

Very prompt reply to all emails.

Hi all, I ordered my torch directly from Sievert USA. It was delivered in a couple of days. I ordered their regulator along with three burners 3940, 2941, and2943.The handle is a 3488(?). The instructions for the burner say the recommended pressure is 28 psi, but you can operate at higher pressures. The regulator pressure numbers begin at 28. So if you turn your tank on the pressure starts at 28. It can be adjusted up to 60. I have been running it at 28 with the small burner and don't have a problem with easyflow45. This is my first experience with silver solder. I have never built anything with metal but decided to build Kozo's New Shay. Today I finished soldering all the parts for the frame, which I should have complete this week. Next step is the wheels. Before the frame I had never run a mill, and now I start to learn the lathe. This has been quite an experience.

I also had great service from NGT. They were quick in answering the phone and returning emails. I ordered the Roundhouse Russell from them and when it arrived damaged a quick phone call and they took care of it. Once I got the Russell back from Roundhouse with the new body NGT called me to see if everything was alright and if it was running good. You don't find that kind of service much anymore.

Just ordered a Sievert rig. My little oxy-acetylene rig is too small for much boiler work.

I guess there are no more bar-b-ques working since the propane tanks are on the Sievert rigs.

Any standard, refillable propane tank. A 20 pounder like those on a bar-b-que works perfect.
