I know the Coleman cylinder was probably made for camp equip, not specifically for torching. The description says that it was made for most canisters.

Answer: 
The head 'should' fit. The cylinder heads (threads) if I remember correctly should be universal. Good way to use up that 1lb cylinder sitting around unused.

Answer: 
No, this is not made for MAPP. MAPP is discontinued in 2008, where did you get MAPP? I use Bernzomatic TS4000 and TS8000 with MAPP. If you meant MAP-Pro, this head is still wrong head for it. MAP-Pro burns much hotter than propane as in BTU but not so much in temperature. MAPP burns around 2000*F hotter than propane and much higher BTU too.

Answer: 
Thank you for your interest in Bernzomatic products. No, Bernzomatic torches alone cannot reach melting temperatures required. The use of an appropriate "oven" will be required to contain the heat in order to achieve the heat required to melt metals. If you have any additional questions please call 1-800-359-9678 or email: Bernzomatic@WorthingtonIndustries.com

Rated 3.8 out of 5 by 67 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Goog Good Excellent product Love this product and customer servicr August 18, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by much better than the ol' striker hated fussing w/ the old striker, but could never get myself to pay $35 for the other automatic torch head; switched to using a lighter a while back, but that's still a bother. i happened to be passing by the torch aisle and noticed this torch head (maybe my local hd wasn't carrying it before) and grabbed it. soooooo much easier than using a striker, or even a lighter. the flame is wider & probably burns a lot more fuel than the plain head i was using before, but this is still worth it for the ease. tho, you can dial down the flame to a pretty low level, so that'll help w/ fuel use. July 1, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by 2 have failed Both failed within 4 or 5 uses. Will not ignite and will not even burn using a striker or lighter. Like other users have reported, they get clogged or something. The gas sometimes varies up and down. August 7, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Junk 2 out of 2 failed within ten minutes. I purchased one to do a quick sweat soldering job on 1/2" copper pipe. It worked for 5-10 minutes then the flame wet out and it refused to light again even using a lighter instead on the igniter button. It acted like it was clogged. No gas was getting through, and this was with a fresh bottle of propane. I've been sweat soldering pipe since the 70's. Even when it was working the shape and quality of the flame was not proper for sweating copper pipe. The blue part of the flame was 5-6 inches long and very thin needle-pencil point shape and no amount of adjustment would correct it. - So figuring it was a one-off dud, the following day I exchanged it for another. - Exact same thing happened. Improper flame and it quit working in under 10 minutes. Two bad in a row is a defective product. Bernzomatic , who USED to make good products, should be ashamed to be selling this junk. June 28, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by great item! This worked great! Very pleased with it. I love the auto igniter! July 5, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great value, great product Great value! Did just what I wanted, to push a button and have the torch light. Didn't need no fancy or expensive torch to do that. I'll not be using it several times a day so there may lye the difference, but what I want it for which is to assist in starting fires for BBQ. It is just perfect for that. June 8, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great Item I had purchased this to replace my dad's old propane torch that was left behind in his old cabin after he had passed away. I had at first thought that the bottle that the old torch was on was empty so I had purchased a new bottle and put the torch on it only to discover that the torch itself was bad so I then decided to get a newer updated modern torch with a built in lighter and I had did some extensive searching for one and found this one at Home Depot at about half the price of the same type at Walmart so I purchased this one and have not had any problems with it. I only use it to light fires in my burn barrel at my cabin in the woods. It has never failed lighting in the past few months I have used it. And I am using it on a old bottle of propane several years old. I highly recommend this to anyone. But I have never used it for any type of soldering as I am really not experienced for that type of work but I suspect that it would do the job nicely. May 17, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by You still need the extension hose I used this with the Benzomatic propane bottle to melt crack filler into my driveway. By virtue of melting something on the ground I needed to tilt the bottle on its side, revealing an issue with the torch head (but would most likely affect any other head as well). This would cause flare ups, slowing down my work. On its own the torch head is a good purchase, but you limit yourself if you do not also purchase the extension hose. The self igniting feature with the press of the red button is a nice feature. Every so often the flame would go out and I would have to depress the red button to get the flame going again. I'm not sure why the flame would go out, but it was easy enough to get it back going. This is simple to screw onto the bottle or extension hose. August 8, 2015
