I am in the market for a torch system and was wondering if anyone is
familiar with the Spirflame Karat 250 Water (oxy/hydrogen) torch.
Since it is 2 to 4 times the price of other water torches, I would
like to know if the extra cost is worth it.
I have been looking at some of the cheaper systems like the Hydroflux
Welder, SRA’s H2O Welder and Bryzel’s Micro-Flame, but am concerned
they might not have enough BTU’s (heat) for all of my work. I work
primarily in sterling, medium to large jewelry pieces, up to 3" by 3"
in size and up to 18ga. thick.
I would appreciate your thoughts on any additional features of this
machine that would justify the additional cost compared to the other
water torches out there. I have searched the archives and cannot
find any on this specific question. Thanks for any help
you can give me on this!
