    OK guys... awhile back I put a post up about torch safety, and I had some good responses.

    well I finally got a few projects where I will need a torch, and I got new hoses, a new gauge to replace the one that had a broken glass, some blow back regulators that go between the torch & hose, and the bottles refilled.

    well with all the new pieces I'm thinkin it would be pretty important to check this for leaks, and I am wondering the best way to check it for leaks.
