Just wondering what everyone is using for a torch for installing compressors. I use a air acetylene torch that looks like it is 40 yrs old with a swirl tip. I think I need to update and would appreciate any recommendations.

I use a UNIWELD oxy acet set and a # 2 tip that i've had for many years.Works well.I have used Mapp gas on some things too.I have used the torch you have but it makes a lot of noise.Does a good job though.
