A super-hot instant flame can help you out on tons of jobs, like cutting braided cable or carefully applying heat-shrink tubing. On Harbor Freight’s site I came across this $7 micro torch which seems comparable to its “mainstream” counterparts — it’s self-starting and refillable, with a 35-minute run-time. But how does it really stack up? Is it a piece of junk, or do some of you actually work with one regularly and reliably?
I’m guessing that in comparison to other torches this thing probably flops, but I want to hear from you: Hot or Not? Let us know in comments.
