I HATED the Lynx I had.

Flame was way too focused.

I bought an Alpha for less than half the price of the Lynx.
I have been blissfully happy with the Alpha.

A minor only has one ring.

My minor ran perfectly on a single 5 lpm oxycon.

It also ran perfectly on a single 10 lpm.

Do not connect oxycons of different sizes.

Wait.
Double the thickness of the mandrel?
