With approximately 50 hours of use per torch, these HotHead torches were part of the teaching kit Mike used for various tutorials, including archaeology students at Nottingham Uni and Newcastle Uni, as well as the Lakeside Art Centre in Nottingham.

Practially new, and ready for a new beadmaker to use.
Included in the kit are ONE HotHead torch, the adapter for using propane gas, a set of safety glasses with Didymium lenses to protect from the flare of soda glass in the flame, and the stainless torch mount.
Also part of the kit is a stainless steel bench mount to hold your torch securely. It measures approximately 24cm x 30 cm and has holes to mount the metal to a workbench.
A close-up of the torch holder, jubilee clamp included.
Alternatively, you can clamp the mount for quick removal if you need the kitchen table to serve dinner. Clamp not included.
They are designed to run on a canister of Mapp gas, which is quite expensive and runs out quickly, so these HotHeads have been fitted with an adapter that allows them to run from a straight propane tank. You will need a section of hose crimped to the torch and a connector for the regulator. Any supplier can set that up for you, easily.
You will need a regulator as shown below. Not included in the kit but handy for reference.
We compared prices from various suppliers in the UK and then discounted the setup by 30% off the lowest retail price we could find. These little torches are so lightly used they look almost new.
Bargain and a great gift for someone who wants to get into beadmaking.
Shipping to the UK only, please choose the HotHead option as selecting another option will result in an invoice for the balance. Please ask for information on shipping out of the UK.
