    For quick jobs

    posted by Srippa on 11/22/2012 Certified Owner

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:more than 1 month

    Pros:
    The locking mechanism is very good if you want to work for extended periods of time. And it comes with a base for that as well.
    Cons:
    Working for extended periods, while a pro, is also what causes most of the cons. A piece near the nozzle that controls air flow...

    Good buy

    posted by cyriusbe on 11/19/2010 Certified Owner

    Involvement:Novice (still getting used to it) - Ownership:1 week to 1 month

    Pros:
    Handy, easy to manipulate. It can be locked in "fire" position. The flame intensity can be changed on the base (+/- by turning the base). The flame can be intensive (much air given) or more "lighting" (air off). Startin it is easy, while depending of t...
    Cons:
    When using "melting" flame, and when stopping, sometimes the flame stay a bit, decreasing then ending.

    posted by ezhfan on 09/18/2010 Certified Owner

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 week to 1 month

    Pros:
    It made very accurately, the metal base is very handy. It can easyly be locked in "fire" position. The flame intensity can be switch in very wide range so you can get a really big flame. The gas is flowing in liquid form so it looks like flame thr...
    Cons:
    Maybe a fingertip on the head of my torch. But this is the proof it was made by hands :-) It is easy to burn something in flame...

    Cons:
    The tank seem to be little to the task; Strass? Not only unnececessary, really kitsch. O tanque parece um pouco pequeno pra uso...

    Light weight and easy to use

    posted by Peterlm on 10/30/2008 Certified Owner

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

    Pros:
    Nice long grip so does not burn your hands on extended use. Nicely positioned gas flow control knob which allows flame adjustment. Locking the flame in the on position allows the torch to stand on its own freeing your hands for other work.
    Cons:
    No lock to secure the torch for storage or to keep children from turning the flame on. Base holder should be bigger and heavier...

    Exactly as advertised

    posted by NicolasG on 04/12/2008 Certified Owner

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 week to 1 month

    Pros:
    Perfect size for holding in your hand and working. I use it alot for heat shrink tubing. The extreme temperature is a bonus for working on cleaning up some solder jobs. Somewhat sturdy base. Tested with a 1100c sensor - melted it. So the torch does go pas...
    Cons:
    Flow control is in the base of the unit, when using the standup base/holder its very easy to move the flow setting.
