Rothenberger Super-Fire 2 Brazing Torch
What a fabulous move forward for an old DIY'er. No often involved with plumbing tasks but was impressed when I saw this item used by a recent visit of a BG engineer. Having struggled for years with the old 'blow torch' flaring when not vertical this was truly magnificent. Not to mention the ease of igniting and controlling the flame along with shut down.
Highly recommended :-)

If you are still using an old fashioned gas torch then get one of these.
It is a shame though that Screwfix only sell the torch with gas via mail order.
Buy in-store and it costs a lot more.

Safer than DIY'ers kit
I bought one of these because my old DIY torch was a liability when working on an old house.
This new Rothenberger torch goes from off to lit and useful in a second, it is well made and a joy to use.
I've found my plumbing is actually better when I don't have to keep stopping to light and then turn off the torch - just pick it up, click the igniter and you're in business!
Can't recommend enough. No reliability rateing yet, only had it a few days.
