Hello Orchidmunity… I have a new Hoke torch that has a cruddy
valve on it. The gas knob at the torch doesn’t stay where I put it.
I turn it on to a certain level and it bounces back to a different
level. The happens on the gas knob. The oxygen knob has it’s own
peculiar personality too. It wants to stay shut…it’s like taking a
lid off a jelly jar the same time, I swear. You end up using so much
force that sometimes the thing opens up super wide and the oxygen
kills the gas flame! What a hassel.
I had a Meco before…but lost that in a custody battle …so I
got the Hoke. I’m starting to take a dim view of the Hoke and
thinking about sucking it up and buying the Meco again…it’s such a
nice torch. But…since money is always an issue and there are other
things I’d rather put in the budget right now, does anyone know what
I can do to straighten this torch out? I got it from Contenti a few
months ago. Thanks in advance for the wisdom and experience!
