The GB2001, Blazer’s original butane refillable micro torch, is a time-tested, gas torch that creates a precise flame emitting from a nozzle head, allowing direct heat application to an object. It is commonly used for detailed purposes such as brazing, plumbing, soldering, jewelry making, culinary, automotive and dental and lab applications.
The GB2001 has a rubber, diamond-shaped, outer body finish, for safe grip and ease of use. It features a gas flow adjustment lever to allow for ease of flame heat and precision change. Its torch flame is adjustable from yellow to more precise and hot blue flame. The torch comes with an attachable, tabletop stand for hands-free work. It offers a long burn time, compared to some other Blazer micro torch products.
The torch houses a piezoelectric ignition system, which is based on a pressurized molecular reaction, and requires no electric connection. Piezoelectric energy occurs when the trigger is activated, releasing a small, spring-loaded internal hammer that strikes a crystal, producing a spark and resulting in gas flame ignition.
With a maximum flame temperature of 2,500 degrees F, the GB2001 has a continuous burn time of approximately 1.5 to 2.0 hours, at maximum fuel volume, and has a 26-gram gas capacity. The torch head has a 90-degree fixed angle, and its flame range is 0.5 to 1.25 inches. It has a safety component that offers manual lock of the ignition, when not in use. It measures 6.0 (l) x 3.0 (w) x 2.5 (d) inches, weighs 6.8 ounces and has a black body finish. This product is intended strictly for use in professional and industrial environments. In accordance with federal regulations, home use of this product is prohibited.
Since 1985, Blazer Products has created an array of professional and industrial tools and equipment. Located in Farmingdale, NY, the company manufactures a variety of micro torches and ultrasonic cleaners. Blazer Products is known worldwide for its original micro torch products.
The GB2001 torch operates with a standard butane canister (sold separately).Recommended to be used with triple refined or higher grade of butane gas.

The valve knob broke on mine within a week. I don't use it for heavy-duty intensive thrash-and-bash activities and I am very gentle with all of my things. It's sat on my desk where I have been using it periodically since it arrived and no children or drunk people have gotten hold of it. The torch still turns on, but if you touch the valve knob at all, the gas cuts out. The gas turns back on instantly when you move your finger from the knob, but the fire is out because the fuel supply was interrupted.
I am going to return the 2001 and get a 4001 instead. The 4001 doesn't have a knob-based throttle, but instead uses a toggle-looking throttle. Say that 10 times fast! The toggle appears to function similar to a dimmer switch for a light. The 4001 has a safety to keep the valve from opening on accident, which the 2001 doensn't have and you're supposed to be able to control everything one-handed or two-handed just like the 2001. I'll write a review on the 4001 once I get it. The 4001 is also a few dollars less expensive here on Amazon than the 2001 is.
I said earlier that I quite like nearly every aspect of the 2001. The only parts that I dislike (other than it breaking) have more to do with the throttle. I think that the throttle can easily be left open if you're not careful. I also think that the throttle knob on the 2001 is too much like a hair-trigger. I would like it if the gas valve was more gradual instead of... Well... Imagine that the throttle knob is a clock and "off" is 12:00AM. 12:00AM-12:05AM is nothing.Read more ›
One of my creations made with this torch!
Since I brought it to work to solder lugs onto 10 gauge wire, one of my co-workers was impressed and since I told him I was going to get one for the company and one for me, he asked that I get him one too.
The micro torch has its place. It definitely works great for heating up the solder lugs and for soldering in remote areas (no electricity). I have even heated shrink tube, however you have to be careful not to apply the flame to the shrink tubing or the insulation on any wires.
I like that I can also control the intensity of the flame. Hey, if I didn't like the first one I bought, I certainly would not have purchased another one.

I needed a micro torch for jump rings and small soldering joins. This was a good choice for someone not wanting a larger oxy-acetylene unit or the price tag that comes with it.Published 2 months ago by Sandra
