A must buy. – HONEST Extra Large Butane Jet Workshop Torch Reviews

posted by Rokas on 02/03/2009 Certified Owner

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

Pros:
- REALLY good build quality
- Very long flame in torch mode
- Two adjustable parameters - air/gas mix ratio (jet torch to lighter) and output gain (short to long flame)
- Has LOCK switch
- Lights up EVERY time in jet torch mode.
Cons:
- Does not start in lighter mode, need to switch to jet torch, light up and then switch to lighter.
- Came in VERY corrupted box.
- Does not auto adjust itself to pressure/gas quantity. When filled fully with gas, even in weekest gain setting will not fully function as torch, as too much gas/pressure causes it to chuckle and spit liquid gas, which, in turn, makes flame pulse jet to lighter and sometimes even go off. Need to keep on pushing/releasing the button to keep the gas pressure low enough. This is really anoying. When the gas level drops a little, starts working fine. REALLY fine :)
- No window in gas chamber, so you will never know, how much gas is left there...
Gas level
Other:
I was expecting an average build quality and just a little longer flame than in ordinary lighters. And I got MUCH more than expected. And that price - maybe a mistake? :)
Bottomline:
I just could not stop playing with it for a couple of days. Really hope it LASTS. It does so far. If You need a tool similar to this - get it NOW. And if You don't need it yet - get it anyway.
