By the way I love these mini butane torches for everything from
small parts annealing to creme brulee. by the way, Harbor Freight
sells a cheapo bright orange version for $5 to 6.00 on sale.
I have a Blazer torch that I purchased about 10 years ago. Still
works great and I use it often.
I recently purchased one of those bright orange torches, from
Princess Auto in Canada, its probably the same as the one from
Harbor Freight. The flame control on the orange torch is terrible. I
find it almost impossible to do any type of soldering with it as I
am too busy using my solder pick hand to continually adjust the
The orange torch cost me about $9.00 (cdn) and the Blazer torch was
about $70.00. The Blazer has been worth every dollar I paid for it.
The cheepo orange torch is close to useless… hmmmm…maybe I
should learn how to make creme brulee!
