Old gas torch stolen so needed a replacement and fed up of having to find matches to light it. This works perfectly as long as you follow the instructions. LET IT WARM UP, and don't reduce flame to low until running for 30 sec or so. Suspect that is problem a previous reviewer had, Spark igniter works a dream - better than our cooker!

Struggled with previous old blowtorch and using this was so easy. Auto lighting is brilliant, heat output seems good, and soldering 22mm copper a doddle.

I bought 8 of these for my workshop.
I thought the idea of the self ignition would be beneficial but I was wrong.
They light up to start with, then go out and cannot be re-started.
We have got them going using a lighter but this defeats the object of them and then they go out again.
In a workshop learning environment this is not satisfactory, unprofessional and generally creates a poor image.

Needed a new blow torch and this looked like the ideal torch with auto ignition. I did see the reviews before the purchase but decided to see if the torch had got better. How wrong was l. At first it was a nightmere to get the torch to ignite. And when l did eventually get the torch ignited the flame kept on going out before the 1 minute warm-up. I would not recommend this torch.
