Q-200: My regulator seems to be leaking through a tiny hole below the upper push/pull cap and there is no way to tell how much pressure there is. Do you have any suggestions?
Our part number 75581 which is the full size regulator with 3/8" NPT threads does not come with a gauge or mounting bracket.Our service department recommends that you turn down the pressure until the leak stops and then slowly turn it back up. If the unit has been in service for an extended time then further repair or replacement may be in order.
Q-201: Is SKU 75570 ok to use on a Sanborn air compressor 3- 1/2 H.P.?
We would not recommend the unit be used on a 3 1/2 H.P. compressor as it is only rated at 2 H.P.
Q-202: Sku #: 87801. Product Description: cga-520 to cga-200 adaptor. Does this match the threads on a Victor Firepower RF250 series Acetylene Regulator
Looking at the Victor website, it shows that if your tank has male threads you should use a CGA 300 regulator. In this case the 87801 won't work, but the 87802 will.
Q-203: I have a Harris 72-2 Cutting attachment, can I replace it with your 87082 or 87086 head?
After looking at a picture of the Harris 72-2 attachment, I would say our 87082 or 87086 attachments will not fit your handle. The 72-2 appears to be a heavy duty attachment where ours are only rated for medium duty.
Q-204: I have a Forney welding outfit with the Oxygen-87070 regulator and the Acetylene-87071 regulator and the 142T cutting torch handle. Do you know what welding tips it takes?
Yes, that product would be our part number 1580.
Q-205: What is the melting point of your silver solder 38116?
The technical 'liquidus solidus' temperature is 430 degrees F with an application range of 400 to 700 and a working temperature up to 1100 degrees F.
Q-206: I have a cutting torch and the two small O-rings on the base of the cutting head have gone bad. Is it possible to get new O-ring replacements? They are about 1/8" and 3/8" in diameter.
If the cutting attachment is a Forney brand, we will need the model # stamped on the piece and the style (Victor or Harris). If not, you might be able to find something at a large hardware store that will work for you.
Q-207: I have a Harris cutting torch and was wondering if I would be able to put a Victor head on the Harris barrel?
We would strongly advise you not to mix different manufacturers' gas welding equipment. The parts may have the same thread but probably will not seal inside, creating a very dangerous situation. Even similar looking equipment from the same company may not be compatible, so it would be advisable to check with us or the manufacturer first.
Q-208: I need a gas valve, swan neck and swan neck liner for a 130FI. There is no supplier in my area. How do I order the parts?
The gas valve part number is 85190; the swan neck is 85191 and the swan neck liner is 85377. Unfortunately those parts are not available through our web store for you to purchase direct. With 11,000 dealers across the country, we should have a few close to you. Please forward your city, state & zip code and we will let you know who the area dealers are. You might want to contact the dealer who sold you the machine first for those parts.
Q-209: I need to gas weld/braze a 1/4" thick crack in a cast iron low pressure water heater, please advise me on best filler for brazing or gas welding.
Research indicates that the best filler material we have is our Bare Brass Brazing Rod. It's great for water tanks and many cast iron applications. It does require the use of flux in the process.
Q-210: I have a Forney torch and need a rosebud tip. What do you suggest?
The part number for the rosebud tip is 87790.
Q-211: Do you have or know where I can get adapters for UK oxygen acetylene tanks to a United States Victor cutting torch?
Unfortunately we don't carry the adapter you require for your conversion. I'd check with your local gas supplier and see if they might have them available.
Q-212: Do you have spark starters and how much are they?
We currently have 3 Spark Starters for a torch, a single flint striker SKU 86102, a 3 flint striker SKU 86103, and a Safe Lite Igniter SKU 86111. Our "suggested" retail prices for these items as well as the 86120 are as follows.
Q-213: Please send prices for SKU 87087, 87220 and some information on how to order.
SKU 87087 and 87220 can be found on our web store at www.forneyind.com and you can order them online with either a Visa or MasterCard after you register with the site.
Q-214: Can you tell me if you ship the easyflo aluminium brazing rods to Australia?
Unfortunately, we do not ship internationally. I apologize for the inconvenience.
Q-215: I have a Forney cutting torch SA5870 and I'm looking for the fine tune screw.
Unfortunately, we don't stock the part you're inquiring on. Another option would be your local gas supplier.
Q-216: I purchased a 75546 regulator. The gauge needle has never set to zero and rests at approx 12 PSI. I tested with another gauge and it is the same approximately 12 PSI error. Would it be possible to have another gauge sent to me?
To make a cleaner transaction, would you mind checking with the store you purchased it through to see if they have one they can swap out for you? We'll warranty it through them.
Q-217: I purchased a Forney Fireman to use on weeds in my paver driveway and slate patio, but am wondering if it is safe to use in that application, i.e; is the flame too strong? Will it damage the EPHenry pavers and blue slate?
The Forney Fireman weed burner is a very hot torch. 500,000 BTU's which will melt, burn and heat just about anything. Your weeds will not have a chance! However, regarding the stones, that is a questions that you would have to ask the manufacture/source of the stones. My guess is it won't be a problem, however, you do not want to eradicate your weeds at the cost of your beautiful stone, patio and driveway. I would contact the manufacture of the stones and inquire. The reality is you do not have to put much heat on the weeds to knock them off. Good luck and happy burning!
Q-218: I was wondering if the Forney 86152 oxygen acetylene brass fitting, oxygen and acetylene hose couplers, adapters A to B oxygen and acetylene, carded pair would make my Walkover torch kit work with American spec gas tanks? I bought my torch in Italy and want to purchase the disposable propane/O2 tanks and connect it but the nipple is too big on my hose. Would this work as a go between for that purpose?
I've been advised by our technical team that the 86152 probably won't work as a go between for you. They suggested the purchase of a 1/4" or 3/8" hose as a possible alternative.
Q-219: Can you tell me why your cylinders are stamped with UN/ISO instead of DOT standards?
It's essentially the same standard, except the UN/ISO standard is globally recognized (including by the USDOT) instead of just being recognized in the US/Canada. The bottom row of the stamping on our cylinders contains the UN/ISO standard stamp. There should be no issue on the fill station filling our cylinders based off the UN/SIO stamp
Q-220: Can you tell me the composition by percentages of the solid wire solder # 38106?
Lead is shown on the SDS as 80 - 100%, Tin is between 1 and 5%, and Metal between 1 and 5%. For future reference, the SDS is located on our website at www.forneyind.com. Click on the PRODUCT LITERATURE (SDS) icon at the bottom of the home page. Then click SDS. The documents are listed in numerical order using the first SKU number of the items covered by that SDS and then listed in numerical order for other SKU's covered.

Q-222: I have the 1680 light duty oxy fuel torch set and I'm curious about using it with propane. I realize I would need to change to a propane cutting tip, but I was wondering if the other components are compatible with propane fuel?
You may use propane with the other components in the set. The only difference is that propane will dry out the O-rings on the torch and handle, the diaphragm on the regulator, as well as the hose quicker than acetylene will.
