Perfect use for the little tote :) but you already know that... Lol

Got one from harbor freight and I use that for bending metal and to cut thicker metal -small pieces- and normally if I need a hole.

I bought a Smith torch set and rented full size tanks and have been mostly happy with it so far.
A student now but really want to weld everyday. Want to learn everything about everything. Want to become a knower of all and master of none.

How exactly would you convert this to propane? There are not many choices for kits setup for propane.
