This Smith Little Torch has become over the years one of the most used soldering torches in the Jewelry Industry - and for good reason! Â
It is small, light weight, versatile, easy-to-use and made to last. Â 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 Smith 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 and MAPP gases along with oxygen.
This Little Torch kit includes aluminum torch body, 1 copper tip (#5), 2 durable 8ft hoses for fuel and oxygen, standard connectors (9/16") for regulators, 2 on/off "regulator" valves for disposable fuels and oxygen tanks and industrial instructions.
This kit does NOT include disposable fuel tanks. Â You can find those at your local hardware store.
This is a GENUINE Smith Little Torch. Â Beware of inexpensive knockoff's
