High Precision, Powerful Torch – Large Butane Iron-melting Torch Reviews

posted by Sierra81 on 01/27/2014 Certified Owner

Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:more than 1 month

Pros:
The torch has high precision meaning you can control the flame to make it very thin in order to solder (braze) even tiny components. I'm using it to make jewelry. The flame is controlled from the bottom, like with any other torch. It's also powerful. It does the job quickly because it centers the heat better than large torches.
Cons:
None
Other:
You can use it for small or big projects. After breaking an old butane torch I learned you need to use only quality butane, otherwise it might get clogged and you can't repair it. Quality butane doesn't mean "expensive"; it just need to have near zero impurities.
Bottomline:
I like that it comes in a box so I can store it in case I don't use it for a long period of time.
