Noel - looks interesting, but I use an acetylene/air torch and a
small Torch Mate torch lighter (works off two AA batteries). It's
about as convenient as can be - doesn't take up much space at my
soldering station (which is a stainless steel restaurant work table).
The Contenti Gas Saver looks (as you say) like it would be great if
you were soldering for long periods of time but from the picture it
looks like it has to be mounted on the edge of the table (?) which
wouldn't work with my stainless steel table. However, for me, old
habits die hard and I'm too entrenched in my work habits to change
such a major one at this late date. Enjoy your Piezo-electric lighter
- I think you'll enjoy it and wonder why you didn't get it sooner.
