I am having a problem with my Orca Torch that I haven’t seen mentioned before. I spoke with my brother about one aspect of The Orca EZ Torch and that was the black deposits that sometimes occur. This seems to be something in the hose that may be a left over from manufacturing but it seems to go away in time and not be an issue.
I use the torch mainly for annealing and lightweight solder jobs. Lately when I turn on the torch and adjust the tip the torch flames out when tipped to begin applying heat to the metal. I lose all the blue of the flames and it “Blossoms” just a soft yellow flame. When I tip the torch upright a stream of clear bubbles the consistency of olive oil will come from the tip. I can’t use the torch like this obviously. A new propane bottle doesn’t seem to solve the problem.
