ESAB Welding & Cutting Products has introduced two toolbox outfits for its hand-held, oxyacetylene welding and cutting product line.

The GT-510 toolbox outfits comes in a durable, lockable Plano® toolbox suitable for transporting to the job site. Available in both OXWELD® and PUROX® versions, the toolboxes include welding torch, cutting attachment, the new Rosebud Jr. heating head, nozzle, regulators, hoses, goggles, and striker.

The PUROX GT-510 outfit contains components built for rugged use and heavy-duty performance in various industrial, construction, maintenance, and other metalworking applications. It includes the W-300 torch suitable for welding thin gauge to 3/8-in. material; the new Rosebud Jr. heating head, with a heating range up to 30 CFH acetylene (44,000 BTU/hr); a CW-300 cutting attachment for cutting up to 1-1/2-in. steel; 4200 series nozzle; and R-72 oxygen and acetylene regulators. The W-300 torch provides speed and uninterrupted welding, heating and brazing in production settings. The cutting attachment features ease-on control of cutting oxygen for smoother starts.

The OXWELD® GT-510 outfit offers heavy-duty components suitable for contractors, general shops, maintenance, field applications, craftsmen, trade schools, and journeyman users. The kit includes the W-400 torch, CW-400 cutting attachment, 1500 series tip, the new Rosebud Jr. heating head, and Trimline® R-76 oxygen and acetylene regulators. It offers a welding range up to 1/4 in. and a cutting range up to 1-1/2 in. With optional heads and nozzles, these outfits can be adapted to weld up to one inch and cut up to eight inches.

Both toolbox outfits feature regulators that incorporate a patented internal baffle design to help prevent injury from burn-out. Built for years of trouble-free performance with minimum maintenance, the regulators also feature color-coded gauges for easy gas identification. Brass body construction helps ensure long service life.
