Solder-It Pro-Torch 220 Butane Torch Review

Solder-It Pro-Torch 220 Butane Torch

The Solder-it Pro-Torch 220 Butane Torch is a great little torch which is suitable for a variety of applications, such as plumbing, soldering and welding. It is also great for small work which requires a concentrated flame in a very small place, such as electrical work, electronics repairs and making and/or repairing jewelry. It is described as a professional torch and it comes with a safety stand so that work can be undertaken in a hands free environment. This is an innovative idea which will allow you to use both hands to manipulate work requiring fine motor skills.

One customer has found the fine flame to be excellent for soldering stainless steel rings on to fish hooks and jigs, as the flame is fine enough for this work, yet not so hot that it will melt silver. Its butane gas tank will last for approximately 220 minutes (3.6 hours) before it will need to be re-filled.

User Ratings

Most customers that left reviews for the Solder-It Pro-Torch 220 are very happy with their purchase. A few customers had a less than positive experience with both the torch and the company and rated it appropriately. If you would like to read the reviews, you can find them here.

Recommendation – Not Recommended

Because there is some doubt as to the reliability of this torch, the few reviews and the short warranty period (30 days?), I recommend you pay a little more and purchase one of the Blazer torches.
