Eeek! Replace that torch immediately! Has to be a leak or a crack.
Don't risk a shop disaster or an injury. Warm perhaps, but torch
handles should not ever get hot,much less too hot to handle!
Lisa, (My son came to me the other night and told me that he hated
the courses that he was taking for criminology, and had found
something instead that he really loved. I braced myself for,
"underwater basketweaving", or acting, when instead he tells me that
he is smitten with quantum physics and wants to be a physicist.
