Bari, The hand held butane torches are just fine for ‘simple and
light’ work. I have a ‘travel’ kit of files, tweezers, all the stuff
needed for simple sizings, pronging, etc, and always have a butune
torch and spare tank in it. Over the years, I found that everytime I
went somewhere, my friends or their friends, etc., always needed a
repair here and there. The butanes are great for that sort of thing.
Don’t expect to make bezels or repair class rings with them though.
They just don’t give those temps for the time required. Cheers from
Don at The Charles Belle Studio in SOFL where simple elegance IS fine
