Choosing a Torch

Don't be afraid of fire when it's safely in your hand. A jewelry making torch is safe to use with the proper safety precautions. Pick a torch that best fits your current needs, knowing that over time you may outgrow it and need a larger or more adjustable torch.

Several of the most popular and approachable torches use butane gas. Butane refills are readily available; hardware stores or drug stores often carry them.

Watch as Kate Richbourg teaches us about using Butane Torches

Micro Flame Butane Torch:

The Micro Flame torch is a great beginners torch. It is light weight and the adjustable flame reaches 2450F with a full tank burn for 90 minutes. Use for smaller soldering jobs, firing metal clay, or fusing.

Max and Jumbo Max torches give a larger adjustable flame, up to 2450F. These torches are excellent to solder larger jewelry pieces, anneal metal, and use for torch enameling. The main difference is the gas tank size; the Jumbo Max has a larger tank.

The Handy Flame torch is truly a step up for working with larger pieces and not having to stop for gas! The torch top attaches to a readily available butane canister (used for portable gas burners.) The flame size is comparable to the Max Flame or Jumbo Max torch.

Handy Flame II Propane Torch:

Here is a torch with more power, but less control. It's not as handy for soldering, but great for annealing and melting metals for casting. Attaches directly to a portable propane or MAPP gas tank.
