Wall Lenk LPT-500 Pro Torch Review

Wall Lenk LPT-500 Pro Butane Torch
Wall Lenk LGT-500

The Wall Lenk LPT-500 Pro Butane Torch is a versatile tool as it can be used for such tasks as creating jewelry, making head pins and melting solder. Having a stable flame is important for this type of work and on paper the Wall Lenk LPT-500 delivers this easily. It has also been described as a heavy duty torch as it is able to cope with being used professionally on a daily basis, as well as being a high output butane tool. It comes with an ergonomic grip which makes using it comfortable when working from a variety of angles.

It is worth noting though, that even with the ergonomic grip, one customer with arthritis was not able to take advantage of the torch, so it’s a good idea to factor this into your buying decision if you have problems gripping.  The very poor review this customer has provided, was influenced by this factor and doesn’t relate to the quality and performance of the torch – which is actually mediocre at best.

Pros of the Wall Lenk LPT-500 Pro Torch

Users had the following positive comments about Wall Lenk:

  • Works really well
  • Has more power than the smaller torches
  • Easy to turn on and off. It has a more substantial feel than other torches used
  • Did everything you could want

What people did not like

  • The electronic igniter didn’t work
  • More difficult to control the flame
  • Very little difference in the flame adjustment and not really sensitive enough
  • Manufacturing defects

User Ratings – Recommendation

Customers that left reviews on what they think about the Wall Lenk LPT-500 gave it an above average rating. The reason for the so-so rating, is that a few users rated the gas torch poorly because of defects and it does not seem to last long before starting to fail.  I would recommend passing on this torch and purchasing one of the Blazer Torches.
