The Goss GP-9 torch looked like it would fill the bill and was only around $12-$16 more than the Mag-Torch MT245C, so I ordered it. The GP-9 is a solid, well built torch with a much smaller burner tip than the MT245C that can get into tighter places. The screw on tank seal is a modern plastic/rubber material, not cheap cork. The orifice and burner tip are replaceable (Goss BRS-118 Orifice and Goss GP-9B Burner Tip Assembly.) An instruction sheet is included, stapled to the package on the outside. Make sure you get it with your order. It includes instructions for cleaning or replacing the orifice. Notably follow this direction:
"THIS TORCH SHOULD BE ALLOWED TO THOUROUGHLY WARM UP BEFORE BEING OPERATED IN OTHER THAN UPRIGHT POSITION. A large billowy flame about 18 inches long can be produced by a cold torch which is tipped towards a horizontal or inverted position. After torch is warmed up, adjust flame to small pencil point before inverting."
I found it to take at least several minutes to warm up before I could tip the torch without it flaring up and flaming out. Tilt test the torch before applying the flame to your job. The flame easily adjusts from a fine pencil point to a large broad flame giving me the flame control and range I desired. It easily ignites with a manual strike sparker. No built-in trigger needed.
I'm using the Goss GP-9 with Map-Pro gas for aluminum brazing after using another propane-only torch which was not up to the job. The GP-9, made in the USA, does the job with the control I wanted. I am quite satisfied with the product and my torch choice and would recommend this product to others.
