    Locking nuts

    I have seen both nuts and bolts drilled and a wire attached as well as bolts drilled and Castle Nuts used.

    Coal won't start ??? Suggestions

    Jim, best thing I can think of is to put 2 pieces of coal in your pocket and by the time you land in Fla. they should be warm enough to light. "Flying out on Monday" Sheesh, Come back and watch us thaw out in the spring!

    Victor rosebuds are backburning

    Does anything here help? I have a Victor 100C that uses the same tips and I use the same pressures. Make sure you turn your acetylene up far enough to clear the smoke off the tip before adding the oxygen

    Improving vinegar removal of mill scale

    OK besides the PPE issue... Do this in a well ventilated area because when I did this, all the stuff in the immediate area got rusty quicker, if this is not an issue, just ignore. Just be warned, you are putting acid in the air and it will land on something. I use acids for color and I have learned over time to watch what is around me when I am doing this.
