This Smith Little Torch has become over the years one of the most used soldering torches in the Jewelry Industry - and for good reason!
It is small, light weight, versatile, easy-to-use and made to last.
The handle (without a tip) is just over 4-1/2" long,Â the body itself is just 5/8" in diameter. Â So imagine holding a fat highlighter pen. Â That's not too bad for hand held torch this cool.
It has 2 colorful, knurled knobs for controlling the gas flow at the handle: red or fuel and green for oxygen. Â These colors correspond to the red and green hoses.
The Little Torch is an oxygen/fuel torch which means that you must use compressed oxygen and a compressed fuel. Â You can use the oxygen from the air like many single gas torches. Â The addition of compressed oxygen means the torch will produce much hotter flames which can be very important when soldering large items or metals with high melting points. Â The Little Torch can be used with a variety of compressed gases including propane, acetylene, MAPP and hydrogen gases. Â Of course, you will need the appropriate regulators for the oxygen and fuel that you choose to use with this fine torch.
This Little Torch kit includes aluminum torch body, 5 copper tips (#3 - #7), 2 durable 8ft hoses for fuel and oxygen, standard connectors (9/16") for regulators and industrial instructions.
This is a GENUINE Smith Little Torch. Â Beware of inexpensive knockoff's
