Rated 4 out of 5Â by greentree Works better than expected
Was surprised the torch is made by Harris not Lincoln. Gave it the benefit of the doubt and hooked up to try it out. Using Oxy-Propane (use a T rated hose) it brazes excellent and cuts 3/16" steel like a hot knife through butter. The torch body is lighter than other torches but this leads to less hand fatigue. Good set for home or light duty work use.

Rated 3 out of 5Â by TheRookie Looks great!!!
From what I've read this a great product. This was recently purchased as a gift and I have never used one of these before. Please keep in mind that you will have to purchase tanks and that usually costs TWICE what the kit costs you (this could be more if you choose larger tanks). I will say that assembling it is a snap. If you are unsure about installation and or safety, Lincoln and Harris both have great "how to setup" vids on YouTube. But... If you are looking for help on what to set the regulators at in order to use the torch/kit good luck with that. The guide that comes with the outfit is of no help, nothing on YouTube (they all refer to the manufacturerâs suggestions). Supposedly this is one of the most important safety concerns for using this yet the instructions completely ignore this. From what I have found out the settings are determined by the tip size (in this case #5) and the material to be cut (.25" mild steel). I can say this, it sure is pretty, I just wish I could use it... I'll be calling a local welding shop first thing tomorrow morning for assistance.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by RobF Does what its supposed to.
The torches work great. Easy to setup and use. I was able to cut through steal that was 1/4 thicker then the rated thickness. The tank prices will kill you though. In S.E. MO. I paid around 300 to lease 2 full tanks. Most of the cost comes from the lease. I will be buying a new set of tanks when my lease runs out.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by harleyrider Overall not a bad set for the money.
I shopped around a little ebay, craigslist waiting for a good used set just to find there wasn't much out there so I decided to buy used. Set is a little small but not bad everything works fine and was shipped quickly. I'm finding the hoses to be a little short but once again you get what you pay for. I would definately get longer hoses next time.
