Default Please help with my redmax torch pressure

Just wondering what everyone runs their redmax at. In the manual it states to run very low pressure. Right now I have mine at 5psi propane and 10psi tanked oxygen. Is this ideal? I work boro only. Thank you

Info sheet for the Red Rocket says 2-6 psi natural gas or propane and 7-15 psi oxygen. It also recommends 3/8" (or 5/16") hoses.

Regarding 5 psi / 10 psi, that sounds like a good start, but remember if you have flash arrestors, depending on where they are located, that can reduce the available pressure by as much as 1.5 psi.

The working pressure the torch actually sees varies a lot based on the specifics of your setup and how much hose you have attached. You always have to experiment to arrive at optimal pressures.
