This has been one of the greatest tools that I've added to the shop. I work with brass sheetmetal and machined parts for reproduciton lighting fixtures. I had always use either an iron or butane torch and I still use them but for certain applications this is indispensable. It is a great little torch and I wouldn't be without it. When I purchased it I also bought the magnetic stand which is retrospect was a smart move and a full compliment of tips. I want to order back-ups for the tips so that if one plugs up I can quickly swap it out and keep working. Overall I am very pleased with the product and also the packing and speedy shipping. If every purchase went like this life would be a dream.
ProsI like everything about this torch - there are simply no down sides save for the gas hoses being a bit stiff but I've gotten used to that.
ConsGas hoses are a little stiff. This isn't a big deal and as I've worked more with the torch it is less of an issue and almost not noticed any more. It isn't any less stiff, I've just adapted.
