Hello again, and welcome to another Tool Talk review from Monument Tools.
And this time, we're reviewing the Soldering and Brazing Torch. As you can see there on the packaging, we have got a wraparound flame, an on-off trigger, and we've got flame adjustment with an adjustable screw, as you can see on the brass thread there, turbine flame, and a piezo igniter. So let's go ahead and open this up and see how we get on with it.
So, it's fairly light. It's not too heavy. Obviously, most of us have used other alternatives to this. So when you connect this to map gas, so just a standard thread, just the same as alternative brands. So it fits these types of bottles. Think it's a one-inch thread that's on them. So we just go ahead and screw that in there. That's nice and tight.
So this is the monument 3450G. And there's the brass adjustment screw that we spoke about earlier on the back there and then the piezo igniter with the on-off switch. And that's obviously the lock button on the top there. So let's go ahead and we'll light this torch.
Very similar. Very similar performance. You can turn that down very low, actually. Don't know if you can see how low that actually is. I'll maybe turn off the light and we can maybe see better. Yeah, we can turn that right down so you can turn that down really, really low.
Let's turn the light back on.
So you can actually see there when we had the torch lit you could actually see the turbine flame actually in operation. I'd say very fine adjustment. You could see there we could turn the flame right down. So if you're doing very close work, you could see exactly what's going on.
Yeah. I mean, it's nice and comfortable to use. It's very similar size wise. How can we see... show the camera. It's maybe slightly taller compared to this one here, but that shouldn't be too much of a problem. The nozzles are very similar, they seem sort of similar length, but overall I think value for money.
There's a big cost saving to be had between this particular one here you can see it's well used and the new, well, it's not new, but it's new to me, the Monument Torch versus the Rothenberger one, which is the one I've been using for some time now.
When you're turning the torch upside down, you're not going to get the flaring up that you do. Like some torches.
You can see there that when you turn the torch upside down, if you're having to solder upside down, you're not going to have any huge flare-ups or anything like that to worry about. But now, overall, say looking at the cost of it, very comparable, it's a cheaper product to purchase, but quality wise, it seems absolutely rock solid. I've used it quite a few times now.
So yeah, with no hesitations to recommend this monument product, again. Again with most Monument products they're absolutely fantastic, and I say value for money. I think when I priced them, comparison they're cheaper than the alternatives out there. So yeah, it's a good product and I would highly recommend it and say, thanks again to Tool Talk for providing this to let me do a review for you. Thanks. Bye.
