Chris This is the flame weeder I'm using. I'll have to tell you, I'm 
not impressed with flame weeding as a means of controlling 'just 
emerging' weeds. I may be doing something wrong, but it's hard to 
imagine what it would be! My unit is two years old and the hood is 
rusting out, also. Keeping the orifices clean has been a real 
struggle, also. I can't see using the unit without the pressure 
regulator and I wouldn't want to use it without the squeeze-valve. 
Boy, it do add up in $$s, don't it? -Allan in WV
