Yes, it looks like a plumbers torch. My concern is about
leaks and potential explosions. It is used for propane or mapp.

You’ll have to check the connection at the tank and the area
where you adjust the flame size. Actually, I used one of those
for almost two years before learning that I had to check
connections . . . warm water, with a bit of dish soap will find
the leaks after being brushed on with a toothbrush or similar
other kind of brush. The bubbles will show up. Tighten up
connections if you end up with a flow of bubbles (looks like a
bunch of grapes.) After tightening, check again. If they
continue to show up, switch to a different torch!
I use a presto lite, acetelene (sp?) and love it! I can solder
better than I was ever able to with the propane torches.
I just saw an ad for the Little Torch (without regulator) but
with all the tips, for $96.00 US. I wasn’t even tempted! But,
maybe I should be?
