This is an awesome propane torch head. I work for a plumbing company that also has a hardware store. Bernzomatic products are all we sell and all our plumbers use. This one in particular is very comfortable and easy to use. It has an adjustment knob and the trigger ignition ensures quick and easy starting. It's produces a perfect flame for sweating. I still prefer mapp gas but find myself using this propane torch often. I would definitely recommend this or any other Bernzomatic product to friends and family.

Really nice, light weight torch for whatever home projects you need to tackle! This powerful flame gives off a nice adjustable flame that is hot enough to cut through anything in it's path. Trigger ignites first time, every time. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]
I really liked this torch. Its light weight and easy to use. Can be used for multiple projects at home. I have not bought a torch before so this is my first time having one and i cant believe the amount of stuff i have done around my house with it. It has a very pointy flame which i love because it makes soldering pipes easier. The grip on it makes it easy to hold while working with it. I would definitely recommend it for those with DIY projects especially for the price. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]
This is a great compact and lightweight hand held torch. It's perfect for advanced crafts, and my honey do list. It's design makes for easy use, and it has a steady flow of heat. I highly recommend this hand held torch! It's the only thing you'll need. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]
This torch is an amazing upgrade for me from my old basic torch that needed a sparker and the patience of a saint. The handle is made from plastic but feels comfortable in my hand. The flow control know works well and isn't overly sensitive like my old torch. The threaded base and internals are made from brass and should hold up well over time. The trigger is only for lighting the gas but worked on the first try. The propane and mapp gas i tested both worked well and didn't lose pressure during use. I would recommend this and feel its a good value for the money. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]
Purchased this torch kit for two primary uses. The first is to heat up and remove bubbles from epoxy during woodworking and the second is to fire up my grill. The product seems to be of great quality, assembly and using the torch are very user friendly.
For its intended purpose this small torch does well for light duty projects such as heating materials, basic metal soldering, and lighting flammable products. This kit is not the correct product for true welding.
The twist on torch attaches to the included propane bottle (individual refills can be purchased separately). I found it easiest to light the torch with the gas only turned on about half way rather than full as suggested in the instructions. I was then able to light the torch every time on the first trigger pull.
My main use has been to decoratively age wood by "burning" the surface in order to bring out the grain. This kit works best upright but is reasonable when horizontal...it does not work well upside down. The flame blows out easily in a light wind.
Pros: Easy to Use, Good Size & Weight, Nice Design
