Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Errant No Threads on Torch!
There were no threads on the torch head to screw to the bottle. Obviously defective and will be returned. We had already cut and fit the pipes before finding out, so a major pain!!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by FirstSolder Torch works well
Used torch to replace a damaged 16" pipe section. Torch lit every time with striker and valve turned on very low. I kept the bottle below the valve as per instructions to not flood the valve and the flame never went out. Replaced pipe and no leaks.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Duffman Turns off alot.
Using this kit was completely frustrating as the torch would constantly cut off. It made doing a simple job long and difficult.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Reveler Worked great for my small job and the price was right
A lot of reviews talk about this not staying lit or not getting hot enough melt the solder. I think the one thing missing from this package is striker to light the torch. I picked one up for a few bucks after going home and realizing a match was not going to be a great way to light this thing. It took a few tries even with a striker but once it was going it stayed lit and was plenty hot enough to heat the pipe.

Follow every review on here and do not buy this. You'd be better off buying the tank by itself, buying a nozzle with a self light, and the plumbing parts separate. Could not get torch to fire no matter what setting.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Firsttimer First time use
I repaired my main water line and did not have a problem. The gas knob to release the gas is very sensitive. I only needed to turn it a little bit until there was this tiny blue flame when lit. Then I would adjust the flame, again by turning the knob very little and slowly, to the proper heating intensity. It took me a few minutes to solder the pipe and was worried about leakes since the pipe carries a lot of pressure. But thankfully it's been about a week and so far the soldering materials are holding up. Not bad for being the first time

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Mike Works great for DIY project
Product worked fine for me to sweat 3/4" cooper pipes into tee connection for water heater. For small DIY products this kit should last a long time. I did not have any problems with the flame going out at all. The flux and lead free solder in the kit did fine and after the joints cooled down and water was turned on, no problems found.
Maybe other folks were not holding bottle in upright position or tipping bottle to the side.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Shifty Honestly don't know how they can sell this!
This kit seemed like a quality unit with everything you need to solder. However, no matter how you turn the valve low, medium, or high it continually goes out within 10 seconds. I must have tried to light it a dozen times to no avail. It's going back tomorrow.
