For quick jobs – 1300'C Metal Melting Butane Jet Torch (Large) Reviews

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 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.
Other:
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).
Bottomline:
While it works, apparently not much thought was put into letting it on for more than a minute or so.
