I have a Smith Little Torch which I used extensively when making
jewelry and doing repair work.
I quit doing it for a while but recently set up my shop again and
made my first piece last week.
My problem is that the handle of my torch is getting very hot and I
don’t remember that ever happening before. I’m using the same tip
size I usually use which is #6 and I’m using about 6 lbs pressure on
both the Oxy and acetylene.
Can anyone give me any ideas as to why the handle is getting so hot.
It got so hot I couldn’t even hold it anymore.
