Anybody have the Harbor Freight torch set? It's on sale from $279 down to $192 including a 20% off coupon. It looks like a decent set.

I like using oxy/map torch for heat treating but the small oxy bottles are only 1.4 oz and cost $10/. If I am fast I can get a receiver's holes and the rails done with 1 bottle. Usually though I will need more than one for the job.

If someone here has the set, how do you like it and how much did it cost to get the bottles filled?
Also, it comes with 3 different nozzles, which one do you prefer?

TIA,

Del

i have a small torch that is very simular .. it does come in handy in the shop .. the gas cylinders
come empty when you get it.. the local welding supply shop will fill or exchange the cylinders
for less than 20.00 .. Keep in mind that these torches will use up their gas supply fairly fast
depending on what you are doing ..
