    It's ok, but not what I expected

    I'll start by saying that I am returning this item. The first job I used it on caused the plastic housing for the igniter button to melt. I was using it as directed, no differently than I have been using my previous torch for months without issue.As for the product itself, it's alright. Not what I was hoping for though. The hose is nice, it allows me to keep the tank upright (I'm using those small 14.1 oz tanks) so that I don't get flaring, and the belt clip is pretty handy too. However, the swirl flame, which is supposed to offer a hotter flame, wasn't exactly what I was hoping for. I'm not sure if mine was just broken, or if I was doing it totally wrong, but when I lit mine up I had to turn the gas on all the way for the flame to stabilize. That kind of defeats the purpose of having a variable nozzle. I noticed that if I didn't have the gas all the way open, my flame would sputter, like an old engine, and the flame would come out in rapid bursts. Once I turned the gas... 3/5 HaLo2FrEeEk - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?)

    Flame Out

    1/5 GJM (Columbus, OH USA) - See all my reviews This review is from: Mag-Torch MT560C Self-Lighting Tradesman Regulated MAPP or Propane Torch (Tools & Home Improvement) It would be a nice torch if it would light and stay lit. The only way this torch would light was to hold the tip close to a non-combustable surface & push the light button. As soon as it was moved away from the lighting position the torch would go out. Returned product & went back to more expensive and reliable Bernzomatic. Reliability trumps expense every time.

    Great Torch

    4/5 Mike M (Fort Worth, Texas) - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Mag-Torch MT560C Self-Lighting Tradesman Regulated MAPP or Propane Torch (Tools & Home Improvement) This torch fired up after the first try. I gave it 4 stars because it uses more fuel for a good flame. The hose is 40" long and overall length is 54". With an adapter you will be able to connect to a 20 pound propane bottle for an endless supply. Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , December 21, 2011

    Faulty gauge/Amazon.com

    3/5 Randall - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Forney 1720 Plumbers Torch Kit, Air Acetylene (Tools & Home Improvement) The torch is perfect for standard copper sweating. The flame is just right and well controlled. I would give 5 stars but the regulator gauge does not work to give a tank pressure. All my attempts to contact someone for a new gauge have failed. All I need is a new gauge at no cost. There should be better access for solving problems. I could have sent it all back but was in the middle for a big project and needed the torch.

    Exactly as advertised

    5/5 Alan W. - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Goss KA-1H Soldering Kit for Use with "B" Acetylene Tanks with Economical BA-3 Feather Flame Tip (Tools & Home Improvement) This was exactly what I needed to do my light soldering. Though I still can't figure how they tighten the "B" tank connection fitting into the regulator. The tolerance is so close there's no room to get anything on the pipe to screw it in. Also, there is hardly no room on the fitting either just a slight surface on the flats but not enough to get a socket on,. Somebody will have to explain that one to me. All I have to say is they want to make sure they don't waste money on giving you an extra !/2 inch of 1/4 inch brass pipe. This is the old - Prest "O" Lite torch, feather flame, quiet. If you need to sil-braze. or need to solder large fittings, valves, etc then, you need the turbo torch. Just for info if you need the adapter for an "mc" tank it's CGA520 to CGA200. Then you have options now to use either the mc or B tank. Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , September 6, 2015

Steampunk - Plumbing - Lighting the Menorah Water Bottle

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.
