Electricians use many different tools to heat things, depending on the purpose. Most of the time, however, a torch is not among them. So let’s burn some shit just for fun!

First Impression

One thing I don’t like about standard bottle-torches, is that you cant get into certain places with them. Having to hold the bottle is cumbersome at times, and it would be nice if there was a …….wait a minute…..GREAT ODEN’S RAVEN….Bernzomatic makes something for this!?!?!? So this is pretty badass. You can attach a hose to a torch bottle, put it in a little “satchel,” and carry it around lighting things on fire! If only Link had one of these when battling Ganon! – (obscure Zelda reference, sorry folks)

Functionality

Well there’s not much to say really, this is a torch, it burns shit, and it has a hose that lets you burn shit without having to hold the bottle. Problem solved! I do like that there’s an ignitor (trigger) at the end of the hose. It just feels easier to use, and less cumbersome. I burned some pine 1×4’s with it to bring out the grain as an artistic touch to a picture frame I’m making. I may use this to heat metal and bend it when I start making light fixutres as well.

Info from HomeDepot.com

The Hose Torch for Accessibility and Mobility is ideal for large diameter soldering, brazing and heat treating in hard-to-reach spaces. A hose and slender body provide maximum accessibility, while an adjustable swirl flame provides hot, efficient heat and fast soldering times. An auto start/stop ignition makes one-hand ignition quick and easy, while a run-lock button allows for continuous use. The fuel belt holster reduces the in-hand weight of the torch, making overhead and extended-reach work easier and less fatiguing and provides easy storage for the torch. Kit includes a 14.1 oz. MAP-Pro-filled cylinder.

  • Kit includes: BZ8250HT hose torch, 14.1 oz. mAP-pro cylinder, fuel holster

  • Auto start/stop ignition easily ignites and extinguishes flame

  • For best results use with MAP-pro fuel, such as the Bernzomatic 14.1 oz. MAP-Pro hand torch cylinder

  • Swirl flame provides a hot, efficient flame for large diameter soldering, brazing and heat treating

  • Durable stainless steel burn tube

  • Fuel holster conveniently holds fuel cylinder for lightweight, extended use of the torch

Summary

I love this little thing. It makes me look cooler than other dads when they pull out their normal torches at boy scout trips. Oh wait, we’re not supposed to have real fire at scouting events anymore. Shhhhhhhh . Definitely a 5-star flame-thrower. Now if I could only figure out how to attach it to my drone…
