Northern Industrial Welders Victor-Style Medium Duty Torch/Toolbox
medium duty cutting torch
great torch set i use it for scrap metal it is a life saver.I use it with propane. I have not tried the welding tips since i use propane.for a medium duty set I have cut up to 3 inch thick solid steel with no issue however if there was a draw back it would be there is no propane cutting tip with the set but well worth the money for the beginner or expert i would recommend it to my friends

The quality of this kit is equal to an equivalent Victor torch set. Haven't had any issues with it.

Nice set of torches
These are a really nice set or torches. Excellent for the beginner especially. The informaition provided is just what is needed when starting out. I have used them quite a bit with good results. If you are a beginner be very careful messing with gas! It's very dangerous!

Northern Tool Brand medium duty torch
I am a journeyman welder and have recently started my own side job shop. All of the companies I work for use top of the line torches and regulators, mainly Victors nowadays, and I have noticed no difference between them and the Northern Tool brand torch. I can crank the pressure up on the oxygen regulator - the acetylene NEVER should be above 12 or 15 PSI max - and I can cut through 5/8 steel like butter and a really clean kerf. Works just as well on smaller stuff. Definitely recommend to anyone working with steel.

Torch is not as Advertised
I just received this torch set and haven't used it yet but overall it looks OK. However it says it is a Victor Style. Well none of my real Victor tips will fit. Airco tips and parts won't either. It has a very small body size and threads and maybe my old real Victor stuff is antique but well they are not compatible at all.
It also says it comes with an #0 and # 2 cutting tip. Well I got the Ought tip, but no # 2 in the box. Look at the picture of the box and you will see what I mean, One very small cutting tip is all thats in there.
If you other guys get this to fit your Victor stuff how are you doing it, besides welding it on?????????
I marked me as Home Handy man but done way more better than that.

Great Torch and Regulator Combo
Great torches and regulators, very easy to assemble and use, excellent value for the money. Can't think of anything I don't like about it. Would highly recommend.

Great for everyday use
Use this product for any jobs around the shop. When done, put back in the handy storage container to keep all parts together and safe for the next use.

good torch set up
I like every thing about this setup except instead of the goggles displayed in the ad they sent the type that fits tight over each eye, fine if you do not ware glasses. not so good if you do. I had to go out and buy a seperate set of goggles I could ware with my glasses. instructions were ok, but if a beginner buy a instructional cd.

Northern Medium Duty Torch
This is an upgrade for me from a light duty setup that I had. It has good quality hoses and fittings and performs well without need for readjustment while welding. I am currently living out of the country and would have paid well over twice as much for a comparable set. I am very satisfied with this set.

The next best to a victor
I bought this to replace a Harris style torch and I could not be more pleased. I have used Victor torches at places where I worked but could not justifiy the cost for my home shop. Everyone knows that Victor torches are the best, Northern Industrial Tools Victor-Style Medium Duty Torch is as good for a fraction of the price. What is better yet is that it accepts Victor style welding and cutting tips. The regulators and guages are of excellent quality and the torch handle is very similar to the victor torches with the same feel and handeling. I wish I would of bought this torch a year ago before I wasted money on the generic harris style.
