Default Trying to Get Back To Glass - Questions

Hi, due to an illness and then my husband's illness and a move have been away from glass for almost 5 years and if I don't get back into it now, probably never will. My questions -
1. have a Lynx and a major/minor torch; with oxygen generator (never used)
2. need hoses and not sure what kind to get as they were cut off the tanks when we moved.
3. would like to do the quick connects again, have the ends, but the short hoses look like they should be replaced.
4. not sure if hoses should be 3/8" or not.

What do I need to get and where is the best place to get it. Have lots of glass and stacks of tutorials which have never tried, I need to have some flame!

Thanks for your time, and hopefully someone can assist me. M

A welder's supply will have everything you need. (1/4" T-Rated hose & quick connects)

What kind of oxycon do you have?

You can call Mountain Glass arts and they will walk you through it. http://www.mountainglass.com

I did this when I first started out and they were great.
