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.

From the Manufacturer

IRWIN Industrial Tools Trigger Start Torch is designed to increase fuel savings and convenience. It keeps the torch lit for finger-free use and produces swirl flame for maximum heat output. This torch has pressure which is regulated to burn in all directions. It is made from cast aluminum which ensures extreme durability. This torch is of multi-application and can be used with propane fuel.

Verified Purchase
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.

I got this after using my dad's while visiting my parents at their cabin in the mountains. There are a zillion uses for this thing -- lighting the grill, starting fires (stubborn green brush / wet wood don't stand a chance before this thing!), torching ant / hornet nests, lighting fireworks, soldering, joining pipes (if you're a plumber), etc.

After using my dad's Bernzomatic up there for a week, I knew I had to get one as soon as I got home... and I did.

This thing is sweet. You can use it with Propane or MAPP gas; MAPP is about 2.5x the price (around seven-fifty at my local HW store, whereas the Propane was something like three bucks) but burns much hotter. For my purposes (lighting fires, starting the grill, and roasting ant beds... basically just playing around), normal Propane is more than sufficient. You can use the tall blue propane cylinders from your HW store, or the squat / fat dark green ones you'd normally use for your camp stove / lantern... it's a standard connection.

The Bernzomatic unit itself is built very solidly. The whole thing is made from metal, except the plastic clicker, which is still heavy-duty and feels nice and durable. It has a pleasant heft and a solid 'quality' feel, and is surprisingly ergonomic in the hand while connected to either the tall skinny containers or the short fat ones.

The unit will start on the first click almost every time -- sometimes it takes two clicks, and I believe this is because if you click it too fast, gas doesn't have time to actually reach the piezoelectric starter before it sparks. But this just means you click it twice (or wait a quarter of a second between pressing the button halfway and clicking it fully). The unit is, thus far, utterly reliable and very heavy duty.

***UPDATE 2014***
My spring repair trick works but it is short lived. When the torch fails, it becomes dangerous and blows out excessive, uncontrolled amounts of gas (and flame). It doesn't shut off until it's good and ready. I've become used to it and it's not as scary as it first was. That said I fixed the torch again today by stretching the spring and trying it- 5 good lights and off as expected in a row. Safety with this is a concern. I can't say I like this product, since I paid a premium for it and it's disappointing performance (or lack thereof). Had I not the ability to jury rig the thing, I would be out the whole purchase. I still don't know/can't predict how long I will be able to use this torch. The issue with the knob being insecure and not locking as it should still remains. My jury rigging only lets me light my pellet stove. Looking back at the years gone by, I certainly would have appreciated it if this product did what it was supposed to do with zero of the headaches.

***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.
