I use the same torch daily. They're still made by Concoa. You want 124 or 144 tips. A 0 or 00 will do most anything up to almost 1".

The oxygen cylinder you got looks to have writing on the ring around the neck below the cap. That usually is where it's marked as a leased bottle. Rumor has it you can buff that off carefully with a flap disc and repaint the tank to swap it out as an owner cylinder.  :93:

I swapped the Ox yesterday, the gas supply shop had me fill out paper work that I owned my bottles and $21 later a new bottle was in the back of my truck.

He also had the tips and tip nut for the airco, I played with it last night. Somethings off, fuel seems to be leaking from around the tip nut and when you pull the ox cutting lever it doesn't seem have much force behind it. Im betting the whole thing needs a deep clean (maybe ultrasonic?) and some new seals.

I disassembled the airco this evening and found lots of dirt and other stuff in the internals. Nothing that some blasts with the air hose couldn’t clear up. The seals look ok but if I have it disassembled I might as well replace them. Anyone know a source for airco 9516 seals?

Take it to a local gas supplier to see if they can order a CONCOA rebuild kit. Not sure if you can order from CONCOA directly, but my LWS offers rebuilds on regulators and torches, but they don't do it in-house anymore; they send it out to a regional repair service. Turnaround time is usually less than two weeks in my area.
