Blazer’s line of utility torches are powerful little monsters — you can adjust the flame from a smoky, match-like burn to a nearly-invisible jet of 2,500-degree plasma, hot enough to turn steel into a molten puddle.┬áThey run on easily-obtainable butane and can handle everything from soldering heavy-gauge wire to applying heat shrink.

You’ve got to be careful with this little bugger, but it’s a kick-ass tool for electronics techs, hobbyists, and anyone who needs to apply a bit — or a lot — of precise heat. Street pricing is about $40.

  1. And they’re tough as nails. Mine is probably 10 years old and has been left outside exposed to the elements for weeks on end, tossed around by a toddler, stepped on and used very heavily. Awesome product.

    Some of these torches have so many safety interlocks that they are impossible to light one handed – I use the Harbor Freight variety, which is cheap, easy to light, and fairly unreliable.

    Maybe that is not fair… you can rely on it, as some point, to shoot out a flaming stream of liquid. I use mine on a workbench dedicated to torch work, with a stone top and firebrick back. If the Blazer is easy to turn on I wouldn’t mind spending more for something a bit less dramatic.

    I use mine to light my cigars. Sure beats having to refill the standard lighters every few days (or so it seems).

    Just don’t light a good cigar on the 2,500 degree setting. Although it might be fun to try once on an El Cheapo.
