Product Description

The Blazer SI-100 Excalibur, multi-purpose, butane torch and hot air soldering kit is a tool kit that provides tools for soldering, hot air blowing and torch flame needs. The torch 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, heating, jewelry making, and culinary, dental, and lab applications. Tools within the kit are also used for electronic, automotive, woodworking, lapidary, and general maintenance.

The SI-100 is a multi-purpose tool kit, providing a self-igniting and cordless soldering iron, hot air blower and refillable butane gas torch. The set includes five, interchangeable tip choices: reflector, hot air blower, knife, one 3.5-millimeter chisel and one 3.0-millimeter diagonal. It also comes with a wrench, sponge, and one tube of 60/40 coiled silver tube of solder. The torch features a child-resistant mechanism, and an instant ignition switch.

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 torch has a 7.0-gram gas capacity, weighs 4.9 ounces and is 9.0 (l) inches. The case measures 10.25 (l) x 4.38 (w) x 1.5 (h) inches. 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 torches and ultrasonic cleaners. Blazer Products is known worldwide for its original micro torch products.

The SI-100 kit comes in a hard shell carrying case, and the torch operates with a standard butane canister (sold separately).

Easy to use after you get past the initial frustration of "how the heck do I use thing thing?" Big miss is lack of instruction book that explains how to turn it on and what the various tips do. 30 minutes spent googling didn't turn up much help. Other miss is that the tip that comes attached out of the box doesn't have its own home in the case. So you'll need to reattach it whenever you store it….kind of annoying if you never actually use that tip.

If you make jewelry, the hot air tip is a fantastic attachment that allows you to solder little things like jump rings without the pickling or tumbling steps. Not only does this save time/money, but protects more fragile things that you may not want to subject to those steps.

The big problem here is that Excalibur has failed to recognize a big secondary market that they have. Not every person who buys this product are professional soldering tool-savvy people. There are a bunch of people who, like me, don't know our way around a power tool, but would like to use it for its jewelry benefits. I know it's not just me - 1 review I found on a jewelry supply site that also sells the same product mentioned that they still haven't used it, because they never figured out how to turn it on. So Excalibur, if you stumble across this, please take note. Even something on your website would be helpful.

Here's what I wanted someone to tell me:
Which tip to use: the hot air tip will allow you to skip all those steps above. You can also use no tip and get an open flame, but then you'll need to pickle, etc. The hot air tip is the one to the far left (excluding the wrenches). It's the one that you can see all the way through.

When I first received the torch I filled it with Ronson butane and it soldered really great, shrunk the heat shrink tubing well and cut thin plastics as one would expect....but.... when I shut it off and came back a hour or so later it was still hot and that's when I first noticed that the unit would not turn off even when the switch was in the off position. I don't know if this is a general fault with this product or a just a defect with this one. Any way Amazon does not allow returns on anything used so I must deal with the manufacturer. Waiting to see what happens there.
I will write a follow up when I learn more from the manufacturer.

12/15/11 After two weeks and six phone calls, Blazer finally replaced this unit with a new one. The new unit works just fine and except for slow customer service I am happy with it.

I almost didn't buy this powerful torch because so many people complained of difficulty in learning how to use it, and that it didn't come with an instruction manual. It does come with an operating instructions sheet that is fairly clear, IF you're good about reading instructions! I would highly recommend the Blazer torch because it is a quality tool and it gets the job done--plus, it is very affordable. I'm a silver/gold smith and use it for soldering. It is hot and quick.

I didn't know "CR" on the product description meant, 'child resistant'. If I had known, I would have purchased the S1-100 instead. No problem though, I'm getting used to it!

Some things to know if you're considering purchasing this torch:

*Do not buy this torch if you are not experienced with torches. The end of the unit gets very hot and does not cool down quickly. (My old torch does). Using common sense will keep you from getting needlessly burned.
*This torch has a child-resistant lock that can be tricky to facilitate, until you get the hang of it.
*In order to ignite, you must:
1. Set the Flame Lever Length to the middle (you can adjust as needed)
1. Trip the RED child-resistant lever UP (this disengages the lock)
2. Pull back on the Red lever (this ignites the fuel)
3. Push the Gas Flow Knob to Lock (this keeps the flame on while in use)
4. When flame appears, adjust with Flame Length Lever.
That's all there is to it!

I purchased this kit online because I'd wanted a cordless soldering iron. Regular soldering irons are fine if you are always doing a lot of soldering, but I typically only do minor repairs requiring 2 or 3 joins or splices. With this unit I don't have to wait 10-15 minutes for the tip to heat up, nor do I have to get out the extension cord to do some soldering in the field.

There was an unanticipated benefit to this unit, which is using the heater tip. We've started using heat shrink tubing to cover the ends of multi-conductor cables where the outer insulating jacket has been stripped off. This gives the cables a nicely finished, professional look. Most of these cables are inside panels where 110v AC power is not readily available, so using a heat gun would require getting out the extension cord, lugging it to the panel, etc etc etc.

I've had this kit for 3 years now, and we're still finding new uses for it. I'd rate this as a highly recommended tool that belongs in every tool kit.
