Mini/pocket Torch - Recomendations?

Recommended Posts

Murphy8166

I am wanting to get a mini/pocket butane torch for soldering, heat shrink and to light my Arturo Fuente - Chateau Fuente's and Short Stories.

What are you guys using that you like?

I have been using the Weller P2KC Cordless Soldering Tool Kit with Piezo Self-Ignitor at work for over two years and just love it.

I do have the larger torch type but some times it gives off to much heat when working under the dash or on small things. This torch will get HOT!!

Is this what you are talking about? I've had one of these for a while. Works great but it's a little hard to light one handed. Pretty sure I got it at Lowes.

I have one of those. It's the bomb for heatshrink, but mediocre at best for soldering. I still way prefer the plug in the wall soldering iron for soldering.

Ive been using the MAC Tools ST120 for about 12 yrs now. Not sure if its still available or what the current model # is though. It stays in my tub that goes with me for off-site work. Its a flame-less torch and comes with a shield for heat-shrink and a couple of different tips. The butane refills can be had a a hardware store or even a drug store in the cigar section. Electric igniter as well.

I prefer a full desktop soldering iron and a heat gun. Rather bring the power to the job than carry pocket tools.
