Hi fellow Tool handlers
I am looking to purchase a propane/mapp gas torch that will burn the hottest for multi usage.
None of the makers include temp rate in detail,or in sds sheets(that i could find anyway)
I was looking at bernzomatics range -: ts4000 , ts8000 and their mini oxy kit.
Can anyone please tell me the burn temp. Of these or similar makes
Thanks for the time given
JB

Hi, May be of interest that I have a TS4000 that I bought about 40 years ago and have used it quite a bit, mostly central heating and hot water pipe soldering. I wouldn't be without it - only issue was about 2 years ago the Piezo failed and they don't seem to sell them as spare part. Little bit of lateral thinking and replaced it with one from a gas hob ignition lighter (longer wire than cigarette lighters and only about £2 from Tescos). I have used it with Mapp gas, but only if I happen to run out of Propane.
I used the Mapp gas for a while with Oxygen instead of Acetylene for car bodywork, but can't get the intensity, so have gone back to Oxy-Acetylene. Depends what work you expect to be doing with it, but as a general purpose torch, I am completely satisfied with it.
