Product Description

Amazon.com

The BernzoMatic trigger-started cast aluminum torch head light is a self-igniting high-temperature torch head designed for easy operation. Simply pull the trigger for ignition, and release it to turn off. This head produces a swirl flame and burns propane or mapp gas. Pressure regulation allows the flame to burn in any direction and ensures consistent performance. Even while the flame burns, the replaceable brass tip stays cool. The stainless steel burn tube, cast aluminum body, and brass burn tip are constructed for durability. The BernzoMatic torch head weighs 1.3 pounds and is backed with a 1-year limited warranty.

I thought I'd invested a little extra money for convenience and durability. Wrong.
While the TS4000 I purchased from Amazon worked flawlessly for 8-10 hours of use, it won't start at all after having sat idle for 8 months. When I start it 'manually' via an aim-n-flame, it has a broad fan-shaped flame that doesn't heat property.

I guess the instruction manual should have said to test the TS4000 before each job, as it is not a dependable tool. Now I'm stuck with no water, an upset pregnant wife, and a run to Lowes to pick up another 'disposable' torch.

Shame on Bernzomatic.

UPDATE: The broad fan-like flame was caused by some "micro-webs" in the neck of the torch. While they didn't look like they could possibly block the airflow, I guess they were sufficient to disrupt the swirling mixture of air/propane. I blew them out with some compressed air and the TS40000 is acting like new. I now store the "torch" in a large zip-top freezer bag to keep out the beasties.

Shame on me for blaming Bernzomatic for my spider.

Like other reviewers, I think the Bernz-o-Matic TS-4000 Trigger Start Torch Head is a good piece of plumbing equipment. My only addition to their comments is that I have been through three of these in about 5 years. They get to the point where the piezoelectric sparker just stops working. I am an average homeowner who uses the torch infrequently for plumbing, and almost weekly for starting the charcoal grill or wood stove. When the torch no longer sparks, it is just as good as any other, much cheaper, torch head.

I bought this torch, because I saw some plumbers using one. It starts with a button push (utilyzing a built in piezoelectric spark generator), so you can turn it on and off without any hassel. My older torches all require an external ignition source, usually a flint spark tool used by oxy-acetylene welders. So, once I light one of my older torches, I usually leave it on. Also, I have separate MAPP and propane torches - this torch burns both gasses, and does not seem to spit or flare up on MAPP when inverted, as my older torches do. But it does cost twice as much. You get what you pay for. By the way, MAPP = MethylAcetylene ProPadiene.

Before buying this on Amazon, I read many of the reviews for the product, including many from seemingly qualified plumbers discussing how to sweat copper and so forth. Let me just say that I have absolutely no professional need for a blowtorch and will not presume to discuss this product's utility in that context. To my layman's eye, it seems very sturdy and has worked well.

What I will say is that I have tried a few blowtorches in various settings and this one has functioned flawlessly for several months - including resolving a problem on another blowtorch: the lack of pressure regulation which causes the blowtorch to go out when aimed downward or inverted. Without this feature it is next to impossible to sear steak, glaze creme brulee, or do other things made more fun with a blowtorch that require a flame directed downward. This torch is able to used in any position, including upside down. Just today I did an experiment with my kids to verify that older pennies have a much higher copper content and thus get hot but don't melt, while newer pennies are mostly zinc and melt in seconds.

Several reviewers noted that the internal ignition mechanism stopped working after a while. That hasn't happened with mine (yet) and it always lights on the first or second try. You can also light it externally with a standard flint spark igniter - the kind your father or grandfather would have used (I also use these for my gas stove as I'm too lazy to fix the sparker and they are more reliable, cheaper, and last longer than the long-necked butane lighters). If this ever happens to me, it won't affect my ability to use it, but for professional use you can see how the ability to quickly activate and deactivate the torch on selected spots would be key.

***UPDATE 2013***
I may have a fix for those of you who have one of these that quit working. I opened it up and removed the spring inside and stretched it longer and then reinstalled it. My torch now works very well at this time. I can't say how long it will last but it has worked for the last 10 times I have tried it.

***Original Review Below****
My experience with this torch is that it worked ok when new. Even then it had a draw back. The on/off switch does not stay put very well and if you have this in a bag or box with any other things (tools etc) in it, even if it is on top, the switch ends up moving enough to allow the button to depress accidentally and let out gas. This occurred to me while I was transporting it in my car driving down the road. This may not be a concern if it is in hour home on a shelf but I feel it is worth mentioning for those of us who need the torch in places outside the home. Lesson learned? Transporting this is fussy and it needs its own separate box to be placed in.

I use the torch sparingly, maybe 4 times a year. It seems the durability is not so good, because it failed to work after about 5 years. I paid top dollar for it at a big box retail store, and I expected it to perform commensurate with the price. I know I had it a while but I did not use it that often for any duration of time. I used it mostly for starting my pellet stove fire, not for soldering except the one time I transported it to a friends house to help with their water tank replacement. I guess it is subjective what we expect from a product, but I feel it failed too soon given the actual use.

I am under the impression that the sparker part of it fails to make a spark and if it could be repaired, would probably work again.
