Turbo Torch - red hot torch tip ??

Post by Dave Knigh » Mon, 28 Jul 1997 04:00:00



A friend of mine who wants to make glass beads tried her Turbo Torch
today for the first time. After igniting it the end (maybe the last 1
1/2") got this dangerous, menacing "red hot" glow within 20 - 30 seconds
and it was barely turned on. The darn thing looked as if was going to
melt right off.

Is it normal for the tip on the Turbo Torch to get glowing red hot like
that? She was using a MAPP gas canister. Is it rated for MAPP gas?

Thanks,
Dave
