Morning all.

I hope this is the proper place for this .

I know many woodworkers also dabble in other hobbies and work areas. I saw this recall this morning and wanted to share the information.

This is a voluntary recall by Worthington on some of its cylinders. Here is the link…

Stay safe in all your hobbies !!

Good heads up. I don’t use Mapp, but I’ve sure had a leaker in the past. Had to keep the torch on the bottle to stop it. Spooky!

I’ve got a Benz-O-matic cylinder/torch that has set in the shop for ~4yrs. Replaced the cylinder years ago, so I imagine that I would have had the problem already if it were to happen. Will keep my head up on future purchases though.
