Kate and all who light their torch with lighters, Lighters sound like
they could be a bomb waiting for the right moment to set you or your
shop on fire. Rio Grande sells an electronic lighter that is very
convenient. It uses a 9 volt battery and generates a spark when the
torch tip pushes down on a switch. Torch is lit in a one hand
operation. Battery lasts forever, well almost. Its cost a lot more
that a lighter but will pay for itself in the long run and is SAFE.
