Don't be to hasty, I'm sure the open cut miners appreciate it very much, as would the underground miners if they have enough light to see down there. :D

Very similar to brazing with an oxy set but much easier.

Yes, and I prefer it to operate just like that. Fluid on the wall is not really a problem. If it was I would rather use coloured water than thin it with something that may seperate when left sitting.

Or, better still, take the tube from the nozzle of your carb cleaner or WD40 tins and JB weld them into connectors.

And a big yes to auto rubber hose for the ends. It does get hot around there.
