Tail Wheel Repair

After many attempts with soldering irons I finally just used a plumbers torch to attach the brass tube to the bracket. I first protected the plane with tin foil, as best I could, generously tinned the parts and then gave them a quick blast. I then used JB weld to add another layer around the parts.

    Bernzomatic TS4000 Trigger Start Torch

    Rating (181 reviews):

    Bernzomatic

    Great at first. Won't light after 8 months.

    I thought I'd invested a little extra money for convenience and durability. Wrong.While the TS4000 I purchased from Amazon worked flawlessly for 8-10 hours of use, it won't start at all after having sat idle for 8 months. When I start it 'manually' via an aim-n-flame, it has a broad fan-shaped flame that doesn't heat property.I guess the instruction manual should have said to test the TS4000 before each job, as it is not a dependable tool. Now I'm stuck with no water, an upset pregnant wife, and a run to Lowes to pick up another 'disposable' torch.Shame on Bernzomatic.UPDATE: The broad fan-like flame was caused by some "micro-webs" in the neck of the torch. While they didn't look like they could possibly block the airflow, I guess they were sufficient to disrupt the swirling mixture of air/propane. I blew them out with some compressed air and the TS40000 is acting like new. I now store the "torch" in a large zip-top freezer bag to keep out the... 4/5 Stephen Smith (San Diego, CA) - See all my reviews, June 11, 2011

    Great at first, but durability is poor.

    0 2/5 Upton O'Goode "Upton" (WA) - See all my reviews This review is from: Bernzomatic TS4000 Trigger Start Torch (Tools & Home Improvement) Like other reviewers, I think the Bernz-o-Matic TS-4000 Trigger Start Torch Head is a good piece of plumbing equipment. My only addition to their comments is that I have been through three of these in about 5 years. They get to the point where the piezoelectric sparker just stops working. I am an average homeowner who uses the torch infrequently for plumbing, and almost weekly for starting the charcoal grill or wood stove. When the torch no longer sparks, it is just as good as any other, much cheaper, torch head. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , January 16, 2009

    Burns but leaves little control over flame

    0 3/5 emptydown - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Mag-Torch MT200C Propane Pencil Flame Burner Torch (Tools & Home Improvement) (original five-star review) This torch worked exactly as I had hoped for. It was by far the best price I could find for any related items and am happy I made the purchase. It feels quite solid and I have no doubt that I'll have it around for years to come!Follow-up: After spending more time using this torch I've decided to lower the rating. It it very difficult to make fine adjustments to the flame. The knob is tight enough that it stays where you turn it to but making minor adjustments off of that position is fairly difficult. If you just need heat then this will produce it, but if you need more control over flame size/heat then this will present you with a challenge. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , June 18, 2012

    DANGEROUS!!

    0 1/5 'Pix' A. - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Mag-Torch MT200C Propane Pencil Flame Burner Torch (Tools & Home Improvement) Be careful!! I noticed gas coming out of the torch after I had turned off the valve and the flame stopped. I found I had to turn the knob harder to get the gas to stop completely. After three such cycles, the valve knob started to spin freely and the gas was on full!! I had no choice but to unscrew the torch from the gas canister with a full blast of flame. Please note that I did NOT use tools of any kind. This all happened while operating the torch with my fingers ONLY. TAKE THIS OFF THE MARKET!!! 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , January 10, 2014

    Better than my old tip, but I wouldn't really call it a pencil flame

    0 3/5 Ryan (Atlanta) - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Mag-Torch MT200C Propane Pencil Flame Burner Torch (Tools & Home Improvement) I was looking for a really fine tip with a small flame. "Pencil flame" seems to fit that description, but really this just throws the same flame as the tip I already had. The adjustment are smooth and it is of high quality, but don't expect a flame that you can turn down to the size of an actual pencil tip. I ended up buying one of those smaller, refillable butane torches. I don't know if it's the nature of propane, but I can get a much smaller flame out of the butane torch. Sorry for giving 3 stars if "pencil flame" is standard lingo for this type of tip, but "precise point for detail work" seems a bit of an exaggeration to me. Maybe it's as small as you can make a propane flame, but there are other types of torches out there that produce a much finer flame than this. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , January 17, 2013

    Excellent torch

    Recently took on a diy project involving 1" copper so it was time to retire my 40 year old well used Bernzomatic propane torch (until I needed it to fix my new one, see below) and upgrade to the higher heat MAPP gas. Bottom line this is a first class torch and well worth the money given the features and quality. No more scratching a separate flint tool to light and the trigger on and off is much easier than turning a valve (which you can still do with this but no need). I was a little leary of my skills to handle the higher heat without burning up valve seats or copper pipe but no problem as this targeted flame allows for precise aiming and sweats the joints in half the time of propane. Remember this shorter window if you are just converting from propane. The project went very quickly with perfect joints so I am a MAPP believer. Also with this model's aluminum torch tip it is almost impossible to burn yourself if you accidentally touch it when first turned off as it incredibly cools... 5/5 Susan and Larry - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?)

    It does the job fast! Maybe a little too fast!

    I bought mine as a kit including a bottle of MAPP from a local builder's supply here. But I thought I would comment. First the TS8000 is certainly high intensity! As others have posted one of the quarks of this thing are it's touchy flame control and lack of a true low mode. I was sweating 1/2" copper pipe and found that in the middle zone it was heating the pipe and flux so quickly (under 2 seconds!) that I was burning it off and leaving these very pretty scorch marks on my pipes. However after a little trial and error I discovered that you could back the flame off to just before it would blow out and be more of a "normal torch". At that lowest setting (assuming I didn't bump the knob with the back of my hand) it heated the fittings very evenly and slow enough to where I could sweat them and wipe them clean for a reasonable looking finish. I gave it four starts since it is a handheld blast furnace, but for larger pipes (most likely it's intended use) I assume it would work do... 4/5 DeusEx (OH) - See all my reviews This review is from: Bernzomatic TS8000 - High Intensity Trigger Start Torch (Automotive) I bought mine as a kit including a bottle of MAPP from a local builder's supply here.

    Standard Propane Fuel Cylinder for Portable Torches

    This is a standard propane fuel cylinder, compatible with most small portable torch heads. I am using these cylinders with a BernzOmatic TS8000, which accepts both Propane and Propylene Fuel Cylinders. Does not burn as hot as Propylene, but is not as expensive either. This propane cylinder normally costs $2.50-$3.50 each at local retail stores. They have small fill ports, separate from the main connector on the top of the cylinder. I've never found anyone who could/would refill them though. Hence the 4 stars. It's a shame that you have to dispose/recycle these when they are empty.Purchased from Amazon vendor "TechnologyLK", for some reason expecting a bulk pack of cylinders. Only received one cylinder and it seemed to take quite a while to arrive. Paid $19.75 after shipping. Looked at their listing again and have no idea why I thought I was receiving multiple cylinders, but certainly NOT worth paying $19.75 after shipping for one cylinder if you have the option... 4/5 J.

hanukkah, chanuka, menorah, festival of lights,
I remember when my Great Grandpa bought this menorah. Crazy looking thing, wires, gas hook ups, but it was a grand device. Hooking it up was a bit tricky, but it didn't take long. We would all sit around it, turn on the gas and just be happy it was the first night of Chanukah. However we would often forget to turn on the ignition first, and often the room would fill with gas, and the result was usually a huge fireball. Well even to this day, it wouldn't be Chanukah without the smells of latke's and burning hair.
