Can I use my SCUBA tank with my torch?

From WC:

 I am new to glass work and am wondering if anyone has ever used a scuba tank for the Oxygen source? If not, does any one know if this will work?

No. First of all the fittings are far different between SCUBA tanks and industrial/commercial oxygen tanks.

Then, there is the fact that SCUBA tanks are nothing but compressed air (very clean and oil free – 21% oxygen approx.), while oxygen tanks are around 95% pure oxygen.

SCUBA tanks should only be used for diving!!
