>Bernzomatic Oxygen is still mentioned on their US website.
>I imagine that this is what you're after:
Irwin don't list the Bernzomatic cylinders, only the the smaller mixed
fuel ones (Camping/blowtorch cylinders) The PDF brochure on Irwin's
site mentions the Butane and MAPP cylinders but no mention of O2.
I hope they havn't stopped them in the UK, I have two Bernzomatic dual
cylinder kits and they're very usefull for brazing & small welding
repairs at the roadside. B&Q used to do them, and I see the Propane
cylinders in local Halfords, but I can't remember if they had the MAPP
or O2 ones.
That said, the O2 cylinders don't last long at all, especially if you
need to cut something. I may convert my kits to take a larger BOC
portapak O2 cylinder.
