I will help you choose the right torch for you in this workshop. I demonstrate the operation, set up and fueling of butane, mixed gas and MAPP torches.  Information is provided on their uses and some demos as well.  Full demonstrations involved.  You will love it! Take the stress out of using a torch, knowledge is helpful!
