I would think so.
I'd say no. Might get a spot hot enough to punch through though.
I prefer using a pencil electric soldering iron on boards as the heat is more reliably concentrated on the component and won't overheat the surrounding area. I suppose it's possible though with the soldering tip, if you're very careful and fast.
It could be good for tight spaces. The flame spread isn't as big as a MAPP torch. You would be refilling it a lot, too.
If you're doing little jobs, like soldering or a couple of pipe connections, it'll last a really long time. If you try melting a pound of lead in an iron kettle, you'll run out of fuel before the lead melts.
For a very small joint! The heat is concentrated like a pencil point, and the amount of fuel it holds is quite limited. It's for small stuff, like soldering, sweating 1/2" copper pipe, or maybe searing a steak.
I'm assuming you mean for wood-burned finishing projects, right? If you could get or adapt a flame-spreading tip, it might be effective, but the existing tip burns very focused and very hot, so it might not be what you are looking for.
