Today was the first trial of my Henrob welding torch (eBay – $283).

I used a wire coat hanger for filler rod to put the finial back on this iron screen. Also re-applied a leaf and repaired a hinge.

I’m really satisfied with my purchase. The DHC2000 torch is just as amazing as the vendor claims. It gets the metal hot right now!

I hadn’t had any experience with gas welding, partly because the torch that came with my compact oxy/acetylene kit couldn’t weld. This one can. I find it’s a lot like TIG: get everything hot, push the puddle around, try not to trip on the hose.
