Yes, but torch size is relative to the amount of metal you are working with because the metal needs to be heated evenly for solder to flow. The bigger the piece of metal, the hotter the torch needs to be. If you are working on small projects like rings or earrings and this torch is not working for you, make sure your metal is very clean and use an appropriate jewelry flux with it, if you are not using paste solder.

Hello, and thank you for your question. This torch operates on butane, which is one of the cooler burning fuels. This would not heat to the temperature you would need for this type of use application. If you do make the decision to upgrade to a torch more designed to this use case, I would recommend the TS4000, high heat torch as it offers a lifetime warranty and is operational with both propane and the hotter burning MapPro. If you have any additional questions, please contact us at: Bernzomatic@WorthingtonIndustries.com or at 1-877-324-4091. Thank you.
Yes if you have the soldering tip installed and you leave the torch turned on for length of time it will melt the frame and the inside of the torch and it will fall apart
I don't see why not........
Yes I use it on a Portuguese custard cup to brown the custard and the pastry she'll
No, this torch is definitely too small for searing steaks. I’ve used it for creek brûlée but that’s it. I cook sous vide all the time. I recommend using a TS-8000 propane torch with a Searz All attachment for sous vide searing as an alternative
Not sure of what you meant,but you can not torch cut stainless steel metal,you must use a plasma cutter for that application. If you do want to solder S.S. to S.S. using Silver solder and a special paste,you can bond the two together, You did not mention of what thickness of the 2 metals,anything that is at least 1/8" using this torch,can be done. Any more thicker of 1/8" will require a bigger torch style of gas system,more likely a acetylene gas and co2 gas will get the job done right.
