WELDING TIP OF THE DAY : Gas Saver AKA Economizer Valve
Monday May 21, 2018 - 37/52
These gang valves that turn off both oxygen and fuel with a single lever designed to be actuated by handing the torch on it. A pilot burner is used for relighting the torch. Probably the most important is use with a rose bud torch. . With an economizer valve you can set the torch down killing all that noise and heat, and then pick it right back up when needed. This also avoids re-adjusting the torch each time you light it. One "creative" use is a foot operated stationary torch or "forge". If you use a torch a lot these torch accessories can pay for themselves in a short time. -guru
