After screwing the TS7000 to a propane or MAPP gas cylinder, turn the red control knob to "on". Pull the knob in like a trigger, and the mechanical internal igniter clicks audibly, which starts the flame instantly. Hold the control knob in and the flame stays on. Release it and the gas (and flame) shuts off immediately. In other words, you can use this torch with one hand. Once the torch is lit, if you press the lock button in and then release the control knob, the torch will stay lit for continuous use, without touching any controls. Turn the control knob to off when you are done and the flame stops and the gas is shut off.
The adjustment knob controls gas volume from off to wide open. In use that means you can control flame size from just enough to stay lit, to full on. By comparison, the TS4000T torch is identical to this model except it has no volume control, so the TS4000T flame burns only at maximum. If you only need a torch to light the barbecue or for other uses where maximum flame will always be OK, consider the less expensive TS4000T. However, if a maximum flame won't always be appropriate for the task at hand, you're better off with the TS7000T. (As you can see in the customer photo, the torch itself is labeled TS7000, not TS7000T).
The torch head won't get hot enough to burn you -- a great safety feature. By contrast, the head on my older gas torch glows cherry red while in use.
Bernzomatic's claim that the torch flame "swirls" to produce high heat is actually true.Read more ›
To bad they don't offer the ignitor as a replacement part. I have four of them. Three out of four don't work because the pizzo ignitor has given out. It is always the first thing to go. When it goes out you can't light the torch with a match or welding flint striker like a regular torch either.
I guess I could go buy three more of them at a retail store, swap out the ignitors, and return them all as bad. This really stinks. BernzOMatic doesn't recommend replacing the ignitor and doesn't off them as a replacement part. Product liability or they just want you to buy another one. I haven't been able to find them any where else either except in China by the thousands. They are much smaller then the ones used in gas grills, etc.
This is a dramatic improvement. Well constructed, lights immediately with every trigger pull, flame is steady as a rock in all orientations -- I love it. I'm not sure about the need for this quality torch to light fireworks like one reviewer reported, but if you use a torch for miscellaneous household projects I highly recommend this one. It is a little heavier than I expected, but I decided this helps balance the weight of the gas bottle.
I chose this one over the TS4000 because you can adjust the flame strength and I can't imagine using a torch full blast for all jobs.
Someone complained about the instructions -- I don't remember reading the instructions, it's pretty straightforward if you've used a propane torch before.
