How to Use the Jeweller’s Micro-Flame Butane Torch


Go to Beadaholique.com for all of your beading supplies needs! Hi. This is Julie with Beadaholique.com.
Today we’re going to do a product demo of the Mirco-Flame Torch. This is great for using in various jewelry
projects including resin making when you want to get the bubbles out, soldering, jewelry casting wax working, metal sculpting and a whole bunch of other
applications. So first off when you get the torch you’re
gonna need to fill it. To fill it we’re going to just use a butane canister. And we’ve got this just at the local drugstore
so you can find it in multiple places. Your grocery store might have it, it not a hardware
store surely would. So to fill the Micro Torch what we’re going to do is we are going to take the canister and we’re going to hold the Micro Flame upside down. There’s a little area right here with where this
nozzle is going to go right into. We’re going to fit that over and we’re going to press down. You’re going to hear a little bit of a hissing
sound and that is the butane going into the torch. When it squirts out like that, that means it’s full. You don’t need to seal it off or anything. Now if you’re not filling the torch for the
first time and you’ve used it before and it’s going to be a refill, make sure your torch is off before it you fill it. Our torches here that we sell at Beadaholique.com
come with a nice little stand. So you could just put that aside until you’re
ready to use it again. Now when you want to go ahead and use it what
we’re first going to do is we are gonna slide this little tab right
here so it’s in the middle to where it says gas and then we’re gonna rotate the air adjustment ring. You can see in here
that there’s little holes. What we want to do is to make sure that those
holes are halfway covered and and this is going to adjust your flame
later on. It’s good to start at the halfway mark. To start your torch what you’re going to do is pull
down the safety switch. You can see right here. I’m gonna pull it down
with my thumb. You hear it click into place. Now this is the ignition button. So when I want to
start my flame, I push the ignition button in. You can see my flame. If I release it the flame goes away. So to restart it go ahead pull that button down. Hit the ignition switch and then if you want to continous
flame you push that button right there and it’s going to
hold the flame for you. Now you can use this for your projects. To turn off the flame you just go ahead and hit that ignition switch again and it releases and your torch is now off and
you can set it aside for future use. Go to Beadaholique.com for all of your beading supplies needs!

  1. When using this torch, what work surface is required? I would want to use this torch to create wax seal pendants with solder. I want to make sure I don't start a fire 🙂

  2. Hi! Unfortunately I am not versed in the technique that you are describing so I would not want to recommend doing something that might be wrong, especially when it comes to safety. I would contact whoever sells you your solder and ask them, they will most likely know.

  3. You can get the Micro Torch on Beadaholique . com's website. The links for the supplies in this video are located in the video description underneath this video.

  4. that low grade butane can be used safely, but upon each refill, empty the torch first by pressing the refill nub inside until no more hissing :3 cuz, the lower grade have this oil-ish substance that clogged up the nozzle 

  5. my torch does not shut off even if if push start button and push off switch to off it takes a couple of seconds 5-6 to shut off Why and how can i get it fixed?

  6. Julie @Beadaholic. Did you see what they are doing to pages now? They have a row of sponsored ads which show other torches from other places BEFORE the description of yours. I think that's sleazy.

  7. How long does the fuel last when using it to solder? If someone could give me a rough idea of how many rings you could solder with the tank full that would be great. Either for this torch or any other torch it doesn't really matter and yes I understand that different torches probably have different capacities etc. I'm just looking for a general idea and ultimately I'd like to know if it's too expensive to use a micro torch to solder jewelry. Thanks

  8. lol… this sells for 15 without a coupon at harbor freight. same exact thing. you trying to sell for over 40? suckers.

  9. $42.00 for this torch is mighty steep. I bought the same exact torch from Harbor Freight for fourteen dollars and some change on sell. And the regular price was twenty six and change.

  10. I've watched several videos on this subject and one glaring omission I've noticed is they fail to mention filtered butane..The can will say if the butane has been filtered or not and how many times..Use at least a 5× filtered butane ( I use 11) to get the best performance from your torch..A low or non-filtered butane can drastically effect the torch's performance…

  11. Great demo. I'm having trouble figuring out the continuous tab. It doesnt seem to be holding on my torch.

  12. Thank you for the video! I have this exact same torch (different name on it) and lost instructions. One thing..may I suggest you never fill a torch with the torch opening aimed at you..safety first when working with flame. 😊
