  • double head torch-reveiws?

    Has anyone tried the double torch head by turbotorch model st-11. It uses mapp gas. I thinking about trying it out cause my oxy actylene set gets heavy going into attics.
    Buy cheap, buy twice.

    Hi Ben, I saw this, but the company that makes it wasn't turbo, it was Goss, it looks ok, I haven't tried it, but it may be something I try someday. Check out Goss, I heard they are better quality then turbo

      I own one,Silver soldered 1" in no wind conditions.Great at soldering with residual or slow drip water.Be carefull,the candle that burns twice as bright burns twice as fast,I.E. lots of gas,But it can be controlled.

        I'll look again, but I got it under turbotorch in a websearch...the "St-11".
        Price isn't too bad either...around $50...I want one!
        Ben...it'd really come in handy for your brazing.

          i use an aceteleyne/ air turbo torch with a b or a tank. much hotter than mapp and lees expensive in the long run. also the hose is more portable than a non hose torch.

          for quick soldering i do use a turbo with mapp.

          for the big stuff, it's propress all the way.

              I agree with rick and mark, soldering 1/2 to 11/2 with mc tank, and then anything larger, use the propress,

                Re: double head torch-reveiws?

                Just to clarify. I want to use to braze refrigerant lines. I currently use oxy acetylene to braze. Setup's fast but heavy. I think it says you can use that tip up to 6" solder and 3" braze. I don't pay for mapp bottles so I don't care how much they cost. Speaking of bottles-- I was at a supply house today and I saw fuel bottles the same size as mapp and propane but it was black and made by presto lite. I can't remember the fuel type. Any thoughts?

                      Thanks Ben. Wow that lil tip puts out some crazy numbers. My only question is, on MAPP gas why does it say it can only soft solder 1-1/2" and larger?

                        So this is only for repair not construction or can I be mistaken or does this change from application to application.I cannot see myself walking into a new appartment buildings equipment room and see nothing but propress.

                        Robert the 3" propress water service at the school that you showed me the pictures of(which looked awsome by the way).On that system,did they use P/P inside the school's structures?
                        Was this specification from the engineer or the plumbers call.I'm trying to see how the industry is receiving the product.

                          adam, more and more companies are using propress. i did a camera inspection at a large hotel in newport a couple of years ago and the entire hotel was propress.

                          for tennant improvement work, you should really think about propress. no waiting for the water to stop dripping and no worries about a leak.

                          call me when you want a real working demo. just not at the time you normally post 4:30 am.

                              I bid the job that way because I was a tight schedule, the kids had a week vacation and I had a long way to run my pipe, along with many unknowns along the way, like tie in's etc. had 5 days to complete the job, with backfill and finish asphalt,
