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.
Working for extended periods, while a pro, is also what causes most of the cons. A piece near the nozzle that controls air flow is made out of plastic, and melted when I left it running for about 3 minutes. Also the sparking igniter in the front keeps getting pushed back due to the gas pressure at the nozzle coupled with the high temperatures.
The base for it to stand on could have been glued to the actual torch, no point in making it a separate piece. Gas doesn't last very long (about 10-min max if you let it on all the way).
While it works, apparently not much thought was put into letting it on for more than a minute or so.
