Great torch, could improve on some details

As a torch, this is just a fine product. Like the control dial on top, like the security pin to prevent accidental lighting. Having said that, there's a few details that I would love to see improved, causing me to drop a star on the rating:

- As said in other reviews: the gas level window is absolutely useless. Even holding it up to a lamp, you can't see a fluid level at all. Of course, it doesn't really affect the usability, but having a window that is useless seems to be a design fail.
- Speaking of design: I love the curve on the rear side of the grip but really miss a little curve on the front for my index finger: holding the torch it a slight bit awkward at first.
- I wish that using the switch to stop the gas flow would be easier to do one-handed.

All in all: would definately buy again, would definately buy an improved version as well!

What you see is what you get. The quality seems about the same as previous torches I've used. Hopefully this one lasts longer than the 12 months other brands have made it.

usefull in tight places

Worked well even outside. Quick to refill. I used it to heat up metal studs I needed to remove in an aluminum block.

Does the job

We have only used this a couple of times but it has worked as designed. We struggled at first filling it up until we realize it had fuel in it. Nice product.

A really nice tool.

This is a really nice tool. I wish it shut off a tad easier but it is ok after you use it a few times. I can see the fuel level just fine in a decent light. Lights, gets very hot if you want it to. Easily melts solder. It is adjustable and comes in a case. I have used it just a few times but been very happy with the performance each time. It has the feel of a tool that I will be happy to have and use for a long time. IIRC it is made in Ireland. It is not made in China.
