Today’s tool review is a little less conventional ‘tool’, but neverless a super useful tool on the job, around the house and on projects. Growing up on a turkey farm, my Dad always carried a propane torch in the truck tool box. His torch was a basic torch head mounted on a propane cylinder. We used it a lot to light all of the brooder stoves. Having the continuous flame made it easy to get those pilot lights lit and warmed up.
Today’s tool review does basically the same thing that old torch did, but with so many more bells and whistles.
This kit comes with the Hose Torch, Holster and a 14.1 oz MAP/Pro cylinder. The hose torch also works with a propane cylinder, but if you use the torch for soldering, MAP/Pro has a higher combustion temperature and is preferred by many. MAP/Pro burns at 3,730 deg F and propane burns at 3,600 deg F.
Having the torch on a hose makes it easy to access hard to reach places without having the cylinder in the way. The torch body is slender and light weight with a stainless steel burn tube. Not having to lift the cylinder up to the burn area helps with helping with arm fatigue!
On the end of the hose is the gas flow valve, of course to turn the gas on, but also to give you flame control. My favorite features is the auto start/stop ignition trigger, which you can lock on for a continuous flame. Super smooth and effortless. It almost always lights on the first trigger click!!!
The holster is handy to hold the tank while you’re working, it can hook onto your belt. It is made of durable canvas material and supported by metal.
There is even a little metal tube to place the hot torch burn tube in when not in use.
Besides being excellent for soldering, brazing and heat treating. This Bernzomatic hose torch kit makes a beyond great bonfire starter.
If you’re into the latest Epoxy and Resin craze, you can use it to pop your bubbles. And if your wood projects need a little antiquing and wood burning, this torch gives you a nice and even flame for a consistent toasting look or char (if you prefer) on your wood.
