Handy Tip:  Heating with Oxy/Acetylene become unsafe when drawing large flows from the acetylene cylinder (eg: during heavy heating).  For this reason, Oxy/Acetylene heating tips are not available in large / very large sizes, as indicated above.  Oxy/LPG does not have the same restriction & Oxy/LPG heating tips are available in larger sizes for heavy heating applications.  Overall, Oxy/LPG is safer and less costly than Oxy/Acetylene.
