(ci. 48-3) This invention relates Mto generally heating ated within the tank or reservoir I may be read torches, and has as an'object to provide a torch of the acetylene type, in `connection with which means is provided for enriching the gaseous mix vture for the torch with gasoline or kindred vola tile fuel. ` ily and conveniently determined. \ The bore 9 of the carry-ofi’ pipe 6 delivers within the upper portionof a container Il of suitable dimensions and which is preferably of , . glass, although it is to be understood that the It is also an object of the invention to provide invention is not to be limited to any particular material.

This tube I5 is con same with reference to the accompanying draw tinued by a port I‘l which communicates with ing. wherein: _ » ‘ 20 the bores I8 of the discharge pipe Il. The wall Figure 1 is a view in elevation, with portions of the tube I5. at the top of the depending por-_ broken away, of a heating torch constructed- in tion I6, is provided with an opening I9.

The member 2I is provided with ' a discharge nipple 22 to which is coupled an an Figure 3 is a detailed sectional View 'of the .iet 30 gular pipe iìxture 23. Leading from this ñxture taken substantially on.the line 3-4 of Figure 1. 23 is a. nexible hose 24 provided at its outer end with a Jet nozzle 2_5, said nozzle 25 being formed As disclosed _in the accompanying drawing, I to provide a hand hold 26. With the valves `I and denotes a tank or reservoir'of desired dimensions 20 open the acetylene gas generated within the and preferably of a ilve gallon capacity, al though lt is not desired to limit the invention in 35 tank-or reservoir I will pass through the bore of this respect. The wall of this tank or reservoir I Y v the pipe 6 into the container I0 and through the opening I9 into the port I1 and out through the carries, .at a desired point, a conventional valve controlled- iilling stem 2 to provide means where' pipe Il and its associated parts to the jet nozzle 25.
