The butane Mini Padding torch is a high quality torch for those who wish to pad with a flame. This torch has a smaller pencil shape flame for getting into tighter areas, and can also handle small soldering jobs. The included plastic base allows it to double as an alcohol lamp because the gas will not run out when the torch is laying down. The rubberized non-slip grip and chrome nozzle are extremely durable. The ignition button allows you to adjust the flame easily and there is also an adjustment for air on the nozzle. The burning time is 2 to 3 hours when the torch is full.
