If you cast with propane you can keep using the torch you already own. If you cast with acetylene keep the torch handle and change the tip.

Why high pressure natural gas is better than acetylene
Acetylene is unstable, dirty, expensive and highly volatile.
If an acetylene cylinder is dropped or falls over it can explode. If you set the
regulator above 15 psi acetylene can explode. With a G-
When you light an acetylene torch you get a dark cloud of carbon soot, dirtying your work area. Natural gas has very little carbon and burns cleanly all the time. You won’t see a carbon buildup on your torch, either.
A 40 cubic foot cylinder of acetylene may cost $25 or more -
If acetylene leaks it will combust in air in any concentration from 2% to 80% and the heat of a static electricity spark is enough to ignite it. Natural gas burns in a concentration of only 5% to 15 % in air and it takes a very hot spark to ignite.
Why high pressure natural gas is better than propane
Propane has a lot of carbon, is expensive, heavier than air and it smells bad
Propane has 4 times as much carbon as natural gas and you have to be careful not
to carbonize palladium and base alloys -
Natural gas and propane burn at about the same temperature but for equal BTUs natural gas is 50% less expensive.
Propane is heavier than air so any leaks will sink to the lowest spot in your lab and wait for a spark. Natural gas is lighter than air so leaked gas will rise and dissipate.
Propane just smells bad and the odor lingers because leaked gas is hard to dissipate.
