Bernzomatic Self-Igniting Piezo Brazing Torch
Disappointing After Good Start
Was quite impressed when I first got this and used it for about 3 weeks, soldering 15mm and 22mm pipes. Started to run out of gas, so changed bottle and problems started then. Piezo failed to ignite gas (couldn't see a spark#, so Screwfix replaced torch without argument.
Replacement was problematic; frequently failed to light gas, regulator sometimes didn't shut off gas straight away #burned for 5 secs after) and torch would occasionally produce a 500mm high yellow flame rather than a focussed jet.
Eventually gave up and replaced with Rothenbeger torch #68635), which has been great so far.
Screwfix have been very good with replacing suspect items.
