For all that, what are the two types of cutting torches? There are two types of welding and cutting torches commonly used. They are the positive-pressure type (also known as an equal-pressure type or medium-pressure type torch), and the injector type.
Anyways, can I weld with a cutting torch?
Torch outfits produce heat (energy) by burning acetylene gas. By adding oxygen gas, torch outfits can produce flame temperatures of 5,620 degrees. A torch outfit is extremely versatile: this single piece of equipment creates its own portable heat source and can be used to cut, heat, weld, and braze various metals.
Does acetylene burn without oxygen?
Decomposition is a chemical reaction whereby acetylene breaks down into its constituent elements, carbon and hydrogen. This reaction gives out a great deal of heat, which can cause the gas to effectively ignite without the presence of air or oxygen.

For the maximum flame temperature in oxygen, the ratio of the volume of oxygen to fuel gas are 1,2 to 1 for acetylene and 4.3 to 1 for propane. So, there is far more oxygen being consumed when using Propane. Despite Propane being less expensive than acetylene, this is counteracted by the higher oxygen consumption.
Set your acetylene to between 5-7 psi (pounds per square inch). Set your oxygen to 40-50 psi. Turn your oxygen valve on all the way, then turn your acetylene valve a 1/6-1/5 of a turn. Using your striker light the torch facing away from you and the bottles.
You can buy the equipment at welding-supply stores or rent it from tool-rental agencies, usually listed in directories under “Welding Equipment—Renting.” If you buy the equipment, the tanks may be empty when you get them.
Oxy-acetylene welding has become less popular in industrial applications over the years, but is still used extensively in field and shop work. Oxy-acetylene is quite common in automotive repair shops, as well as plumbing applications, fabricating, and even artisan welding.
The blow torch is essentially a metal tube that mixes acetylene – an odorless colorless hydrocarbon gas – and oxygen to create a very hot pinpoint flame. That flame can be used for cutting and welding (although it's not as efficient a way to weld metal as electric arc welding).
