Dan, if you can, stay with the taller wheels/tires. They will roll over rough terrain and not gob up a pile of leaves in the fall as you pull it to the job. The cart itself probably would sell for over fifty bucks! Gauges, they are hit and miss. Depends on many things, inside the gauge what connects the two halves of the regulator is a diaphragm, if the T-screws have been left turned in, there is a good chance the diaphragm has a permanent bend in it (like leaving the corner of a page bent for the summer, it is there to stay). The set from Northern offers a lot. New gauges, hoses, torch body. Use thread tape to put the whole thing together. Check for leaks with soapy water, acet. and oxy. are expensive to let leak out. The other neat thing about the Northern set you show, the torch body hooks up to the hoses permanently, but if you want to go from a cutting tip to a heating tip (rosebud) (the one that looks like it has a can on the end) to a brazing/welding tip, it is a quick coupler system. That is very handy!
If you buy a new system, remember there is powder much like talcum powder so regardless how long they have been laying around or in a showroom window, the hoses aren't collapsed and stuck together. So when putting it together for the first time, again using thread tape at each connection, connect the gauge to the cylinder, pressurize the gauge and blow it out (purge it). Then connect the hose to the gauge and purge the hose, then connect the torch body to the hose and purge it. Saves a lot of headaches. You will not know how you survived without a torch after having one for a while. Great buy!!
God and family, the rest is icing on the cake.
I'm so far behind, I think I'm in first place.
