Hii Onjoo Shon,

I’ve used the Blazer for seveal years, it’s a great little
torch. It should work well on ‘small’ items. For larger items the
flame isn’t large enough to produce the heat required for
soldering with the higher heat solders. Using easy or super easy
solder on large pieces may work. I have noticed that the flame is
larger after refilling the torch. Perhaps refilling just before
soldering a 'larger ’ piece would help also.

Onjoo, I think you will find that the butane torch will work
similar to a propane torch. If you are working with copper and
brass and will be soft soldering the pieces together then this
type of torch will work fine but if you intend to work in silver
and gold the butane will not be hot enough to hard solder pieces
together. You would be better off looking for an acetlylene
torch at the very least. If you are worried about having a large
tank of gas in the house you can get a “M” size bottle of
acetlylene and that wont pose too much of a hazard. Just follow
all the safety procedures when dealing with acetlylene. Michael

Doesn’t the “Little Torch” use either propane/oxygen or
acetelene/oxygen? I am not aware of a Little Torch using butane
(sp?) Please enlighten me. . .

Fishbre:

My Little Torch instructions list regulators for: acetylene,
hydrogen and LP gas (propane, propylene, MAPP, HPG or Flamex).
They also mention natural gas as a fuel in the tips chart. I’m
not clear whether natural gas uses an LP regulator or not — I
would suspect so. HTH

hi all ! and thanks David ,Michael and all about your kind reply
to the asking,

    Doesn't the "Little Torch" use either propane/oxygen or
acetelene/oxygen?  I am not aware of a Little Torch using
butane (sp?)  Please enlighten me. . .

and Fishbre396, I have also an reply from the shop sell the
toaches. here it is,

The Brazer torch has a flame similar to acetylene/air. It uses
propane and air. It is refilled with a Ronson ciggarette lighter
refill bottle that you can buy in most department stores. We can
not ship these refill cartridges. The Little Torch uses oxygen
and acetylene. It has very small tips and the flame is VERY hot! I
have found that it is good for spot repairs and for tiny gold
work such as soldering prongs for gem stones. For anything larger
than earrings you are better off with an acetylene / air or
propane / air torch setup. The larger acetylene torches (Smith
and Presto-Lite) have the advantage of having a MUCH larger
supply of fuel, much better flame controll and a lot of tip
sizes. I prefer the Smith acetylene / air setup because you can
adjust the flame and hold the torch body with the same hand
because the valve is on the top near the finger tips. But, they
cost three times as much as a Blazer. The Blazer will do a good
job for you if you just need to occasinally do some soldering. If
you intend to do very much more work than that, you should get
the Smith or Presto-Lite. Both torches are only as safe as the
user makes them.
