Can you cut stainless steel with oxy-acetylene torch?

Agreed. Metals that can be oxidized, such as steel, can be effectively cut with a cutting torch. Other metals, such as aluminum and stainless steel don’t oxidize, or rust, so they can’t be cut with a torch even though an oxyfuel torch gets hot enough to melt these metals.

Can acetylene tanks explode?

Acetylene is highly unstable. High pressure or temperatures can result in decomposition that can result in fire or explosion. Acetylene cylinders must never be transported or stored in a closed vehicle.
