Acetylene is the hottest and most efficient fuel gas on the market, making it the preferred product for many applications.
It is also the only fuel gas hot enough to weld steel. When using our oxygen and acetylene together, flame temperatures can reach an amazing 3500°C (6330°F).
You will typically use between 2 to 3 times the amount of oxygen as you would acetylene so don’t let the smaller size of our cylinder put you off. Using a number 5 welding nozzle with this gas cylinder will typically provide over 5 hours of welding time.
This gas becoming increasingly difficult to source for the small user. Hobbyweld now have the rent-free answer!
Combine this gas bottle with our Hobbyweld Oxygen cylinder for the perfect portable rent-free gas welding kit.

As you may be aware, we – like many other suppliers of Acetylene in the UK – outsource the filling of our Acetylene cylinders to a plant in Europe. We regret to inform you that despite having plenty of new cylinder stock, we continue to have difficulty getting the product filled. We are not currently able to get a substantial product flow from our contracted supplier and this is causing much frustration to end users, stockists and ourselves.
This has been an on-going issue for a while now and I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for your understanding and patience during this difficult period.
For now, current status remains unchanged with major supply restrictions from the external filling plant, with no assurance from them to when current shortages are going to end.
Therefore, effective immediately, please suspend all NEW Hobbyweld Acetylene business. Current stock should be used only to support existing customer demand.
We will be issuing a statement on our website reflecting this issue.
